Clay Craft, Beach or Kiln Craft?? Salt & Pepper

Post  mike67 on Sat 7 Jun - 17:11

Came across these the other day and thought they had a CC look about them? But then I also thought they looked a bit like Orzel! flat white base with obvious mold lines.  So much to learn!!

Also these. These have a rougher flat base in more yellow/buff clay. I have a few bits now with that distinct coloured base.

Mike the glaze on top left and the orange glaze both look like kiln craft/clay craft but agreed we still have so much to learn. I believe there are other manufacturers we haven't even got on the radar yet.

I think you're on the right track Mike.

The brown is pre-CC (Beach-KilnCraft), the yellow-orange is familiar but I can't place it.

I have seen some looking yellowy underneath too. May be the clay they used earlier on.
I have a beer mug that grows mould underneath at every opportunity.

You've posted so much in such a short time. Do you have some shelves to show us?

Here are some of the yellowish based clay possible pre Clay Craft I had mentioned. Similar base as the 2nd yellow and white glazed salt and pepper. The pot on the right is in the gallery as a spice jar. Glazes look like CC family??



Then there are these. This salt and pepper and plate have the same glaze as the spoons jar and large container.


Bad light for the photos.

Jeremy, most of my shelves and cabinets have nearly all English, European and Oriental items in them. My NZ stuff has been packed up for ages and I am in the process of swapping some of the exotic for indigenous and finding an appealing way to show it. This forum has rekindled an interest. Just a jumble at the moment. I will put some photos up in another post in an appropriate area on the forum.

These mugs are marked "BEACH". Small bowl unmarked must be as well as it is an exact match. Mugs H115 mm and bowl D135 mm. I think the mugs are in the gallery as both Beach and Kiln Craft. This glaze as Kiln Craft in the gallery but these are definitely Beach.


Leads me to believe these are all Beach. The small bowl has that rougher more yellow clay showing on the base. Mugs have a tidy foot ring.

Mike, you've added some interesting new shapes there, the more interesting for the banding on the bodies.

It's hard to be sure about the glaze colours in the photos.

FYI. Beach and "Traditional" marks are very hard to read in the the glaze on some of the bases.

The additional rings on the spoons jar are new but the blobby writing seems to be a match for other items Val has proposed as Beach/KilnCraft, and I am inclined to agree.

The wee saucer appears to be a match for my Clay Craft one.

The pepper and salt look like a Clay Craft glaze rather than KilnCraft.

I have seen the tall barrel shaped container/vase before and assumed Beach-Clay Craft.

The semi conical bowl is nice, and appears to match the the tall pieces.

I think you need some comments from Val now.

As the top glaze looks so like that on all the orange Beach pieces I was wondering if it was the same (Uranium oxide?) glaze with a different result. Mike's and Val's pieces appear to be a solid orange but mine is a mix of orange and yellow.
