The first mug is clearly marked "RK" with two dots, maybe three, and "1/1".


The second mug in the same body and glazes is less well executed.


Larger is about 90mm H, smaller about 70.

Pretty sure they're by the same person.


Apart from the obvious, the handles have the same two-finger press at top.
The body appears to match, seen through a bit of dirt on the smaller.
The clay is white and fine, with a sparkle like vitrified/porcelain and some very fine dark speck.

Bought about a month apart at Whangarei hospice shop, presumably the work of a Northlander.
From here:

It's no wonder I couldn't find it in the gallery. Who would look under P for RK!
Potters marks says Taupo for the Palmers.

It would appear from the internet that Kay Palmer died this year.

l bought the Ferret's RKP mug and this morning I found that I had another on the shelf (unmarked for maker) with the same decoration, so I now have four mugs by Ross and Kay Palmer:
