Seakins (Pacific) mark for gallery

Seakins (Pacific) mark for gallery

Post  Maryr on Thu 6 Nov - 12:28

Hemara and Frances Hemara showed me a plate made by Charlie and Chrissie Seakins.  Since then I have found a few pieces of my own. They have/had? a plate making machine and the ware is hand decorated by Chrissie and sold under the Pacific brand. They are based in Northcote on the North Shore, Auckland. I believe Charlie was a hand thrower before they started making tableware. This cup is 9 cm high, plate/saucer 20 cm wide and the platter is huge at 20 cm wide. The plate that came with the cup has no indent; there were several sets and they were all the same so I am wondering if they didn't make saucers as such.

Last time I was at the Seakins Charlie was using his plate making machine.

Here is a piece of theirs that I have and love ...

Another Seakins

I assume this mug is Charlie Seakins as well. I have also seen a lovely lidded jar with the same mark, but managed not to buy it! Photos Jake Monk

Pacific NZ mug (Painted Pacific, Seakins)

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Wed 2 Nov - 14:34

Pacific NZ mug.


This Pacific NZ mug shape is not in the current Seakins catalogue, but the pattern is. The background for this "Pohutukawa" design includes "black sand from ... Muriwai ... suspended in [the] glaze."
http://www.paintedpacificpottery.co.nz/mugs

CORRECTION: while it is not on the mugs page this "tall mug" can be seen on the Pohutukawa page: http://www.paintedpacificpottery.co.nz/pohutukawa

The most expensive mug at Sallies at $4 but I paid anyway. Like my Keriblue Pohutukawa mug this is effectively a new item so it was cheap at the price.

In the potters marks gallery there is a Painted Pacific mark under Seakins but  I don't see Val's Pacific NZ mark anywhere.
