I am not certain Either way - Paul Walshe was one I considered, and having the NZ there too.. hmmmm

The washed glaze is reminiscent of Paul's work, but this mark is tiny and quite controlled, paul's do tend to be larger and 'looser', his marks also tend to be glaze filled, whereas this one is incised through the glaze.

Paul's "z"s that I have seen have a straight bottom line, and this has a definite wiggle...

hmmmm

I don't think it looks like Paul Walshe, as he usually does his more vertically, and this mark is horizontal and looks to be slanting backwards a little. Paul's mark also looks to be made from long downward strokes, but this mark does not give that impression.
This auction also has NZ http://www.trademe.co.nz/pottery-glass/porcelain-pottery/other-nz-manufacturers/auction-680688909.htm and see the mark on my pot http://www.newzealandpottery.net/t3868-paul-walshe?highlight=paul+walshe where the P and W are quite defined.
Probably not too much help, but it is more similar I think to Cabbagetree pottery.

I tend to agree, there are too many dissimilarities with the Paul Walshe's marks that I have seen. A pity I can't track down any examples of cabbage tree's work. Would be interesting to know who is/are the potter/s involved.

 Editing because of Ev's latest post -
WOW Ev, I agree that that platter has aboslutely been made by the same hand as mine, but I would be interested in the provenance of the mark, i.e. how have they identified that mark as being Paul Walshe's. I might ask them a wee question on one of their ther listings (once I'm over the whole earthquake shock here)

Fantastic if it is, I just want to be as sure as possible, either way!

Earthquake?  I must check out Geonet ..... oh wow 3.5 that would let you know what is happening ...... Hugs!
I've seen that mark credited to Paul Walshe many times, but I also have self doubts as his glazing practices are pretty boring unlike this plate of yours and that splatter plate.
The Cabbage Tree Pottery is pretty much an enigma.  I've never seen any of their work and heard that they worked on the North Shore, Auckland and I have asked around, as their mark shows up in the Potters Marks book.   I can only find one reference to their work on Trade Me from 2011 .... goblets and no images.  That is why I like to see not only a potters mark, but a piece of their work, so that there is some guide to confirm who made the pottery.

Edits to add is it true that there was a 6.3 quake 15 km east of Eketahuna????????

Never mind the 3.5, it was the 6.2 that shook me!!!!

Fell down the stairs and everything lol, bruised but ok.

We had just spent an hour unpacking breakables from  when we moved here over 3 years ago. 

Found my Doris Dutch trinket box, my partner had brought it upstairs from where I'd put it on the piano after unpacking. I had just finished washing it, in preparation for photos, put it on the table, walked 4 feet to get my camera, and that's when the earthquake hit! (it survived!)

stove moved 10cm, smashed bottle of plum sauce, a few small ornaments chipped or broken, pictures off walls, cascades of books/papers off shelves, doors swung open.

ALl my NZ pottery survived intact, a couple had a very lucky escape (stichbury and pat neighbour jugs) after nearly going out the window. I had just today brought a lot of stuff down from a high shelf in prep for blu-tacking, but it all survived anyway, as did my entire (blu-tacked) glass collection.

another wee aftershock now.... d

Thanks Smile Have given my shoulder a bit of a wrench too, the aches are setting in a bit now the adrenaline has faded!

At least we are far enough away that the aftershocks aren't too much of a bother, but it could be interesting getting to sleep tonight..

I wish we could look up this old listing http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=481684119, or ask Paul Walshe?

Same mark on another simply stunning piece !!!
http://www.trademe.co.nz/a.aspx?id=730991863

Just to recap - this work is definitely not Paul Walshe's and as the Cabbage Tree Pottery mark doesn't even look like PW on a lean, I can't see that it is their work either.
