MIREK SMISEK ? ... No this is Stephen McCarthy's mark

Post  feldspar on Mon 10 Jun - 2:22

Hello  everyone!
Is anyone familiar with this pottery mark? It was attributed to Mirek Smisek, however I was unable to find any records to support that .Any thoughts?

I have the book Mirek Smisek 60 years 60 pots which has all of his marks and I don't see this mark anywhere. Nice salt glazed pot though. Cheers Ev

This may be Stephen McCarthy from Nelson. I can only find references to him online, nothing concrete, but this auction may help http://www.trademe.co.nz/a.aspx?id=826277865

Hi Cat, there is no further info on this mark yet, so please keep a look out for any inkling of the maker.
