2 possible NZ pottery & Christine Boswijk and Stephen Robertson

Post  mumof1 on Wed 22 Apr - 14:28

A couple of new finds, but who made them, and are they even NZ Pottery?

A couple of red clay mugs, rather funky

with this mark, either SR or STR

Another mug, with distinctive style and handle

It has a distinctive mark too, which I feel I should know

Lastly, a lovely cup and saucer, in a speckled finish, with 2 different marks, but I'm sure they are a pair

The cup

and the saucer - looks a little like a wolf or something

Is the second mug Christine Boswijk maybe?

I was hunting down some info on Christine Boswijk, and on her home page is the same symbol, so I am assuming it is her mark? http://www.christineboswijkworkshop.co.nz/
I also asked on Tim's page if anyone knew, but nothing so far.

I would say that the mark is definitely Christine's and that perforated handle is extremely familiar but I can't see another when I search her images on Google.

I emailed Christine, and she confirmed the mark with this - 'The mark seen on my home page is the mark on most of my work- on sculpture it is in lead and as a stamp on my more functional pieces.' Lucky me, she invited me to go and see her some time bounce

Stephen Robertson

The top two photos in this topic are mugs by Stephen Robertson and his mark. I saw them when this topic popped up in a google search for something entirely different and recognised them from my visit to South Street Gallery, and from their website:
http://www.nelsonpottery.co.nz/stephen-robertson.html

His work is stunning but I do not have any yet.

The mark can go in the gallery under Stephen's name now.
