Cup with a "shiney grain/ wood veneer finish"

Post  JanPots on Wed 4 Dec - 7:45

Hi- Question has anyone any knowledge about this pottery? I have seen a cup like this on my travels, its square in shape and has "shiney grain/ wood veneer finish".

Ooooow How interesting and they even mention Titian! There is something about Titian making domestic ware in the woodgrain finish in Gail Henry's book. I will check it out when I get time, but right now I'm off to get ready to go to the Auckland Studio Potters Exhibition at Wallace House.

Just checking this blog site and it shows some woodgrain items. http://titianpottery.blogspot.co.nz/
Next time I am in town I will grab the cup - its not expensive and on the half price shelf!

Yes... Manos showed me a Titian woodgrain vase and it was much more like varnished wood and more sophisticated than that cup.
Meanwhile here is something I have been meaning to put on the site for a while.. a small  (10 cm) vase I picked up hoping it was Te Rona. Having compared it with the pics on the site, I don't believe it is -  but I wonder if it is related to that cup. It is much paler but has the same swirly look.  We need to have a look at the base of the cup! Good idea to grab it.

Interesting vase using marbled clay ...... did Steenstra use this technique?
Only a teeny weeny bell is ringing, but I will check that out as well.

I have a couple of the Titian wood grain vases and they are far superior to that cup, but they had to start somewhere I guess ~.~

Curiosity got the better of me!
Gail Henry New Zealand Pottery page 169

Tableware:
Square cups with rounded edges in Teddy Rennie's woodgrain finish, mahogany, made for a Rotorua company.
Also Lazy Susan dishes for Sargoods, with woodgrain glaze finish in various colours.

Actually that cup looks similar to the Crown Lynn 'fat bottom' cup doesn't it?
