Such a cute mark that, surely made by pressing a button into the clay?

Oh yes, nice pot too!Wink

One Mystery mark solved

Post  teaandcoffee on Sat 15 Nov - 22:33

I was leafing through the Spring 1979 edition of the NZ Potter and found one of our mystery marks on p 21.
The four dots in two concentric circles is Ben Woollcombe who was associated with Dennis O'Conner and Helen Mason.

I can't find the original post for the pot with the mark that somebody wanted identified.

There is a link to the pot further down in the Quick Reply  -

I just looked at the article about him in the Potter magazine and think I was right in saying that the piece I have looks like it was fired in an electric kiln as the clay is dry and uninteresting. Now I would like to find one of his diesel fired or salt glazed pieces.

Thank you so much t&c as that is another mark not in the Potters Marks book cheers

I think this is the same Ben Woollcombe:

He is still active but as a very talented painter.
