Just wondering if anyone has mentioned a link between Parker and Beach at any time. Some Parker I have has a very Beachy?? feel to it. Same clay and same lid shape and feel. I seem to remember something being mentioned before?

Yes you are right Mike, as I think it was Val who mentioned that thought. When I was posting her lidded jars into the Parker Gallery I had the same thoughts too.
Norm Parker didn't mention what he did before he started potting at his home, though he showed up in the Electoral Rolls as a builder from 1990.
We just need someone who worked at Beach to tell us who else worked there!

Hi Mike.

Ev got in ahead of me but I won't change this.

I have read that Norm Parker worked at Beach but can't remember where.

I totally agree about similarities.

The clay in the two handpotted Parker mugs seems very like the Beach clay.

And ..
the fineness and lightness of the Parker handpotted mugs tells me he knew what he was doing.

This is a large Parker casserole - 200 mm high and 250 across. Same clay as Beach...yellow and rough. Lid feels thin and similar to the Beach lids. I have lots of Parker...I must drag it out and have a good look.
