Those Murray Hillside Pottery salt glazes are to die for. The blue lidded pots would be my choice (I suspect they already have a sold sticker on them).

Not so (re red spots), t&c, and if they did not sell yesterday afternoon they will certainly be available until Wednesday when the gallery reopens.

The mugs were remarkably cheap at $30 and $35 considering the quality of the work and the reputation of the potter. I only bought the smaller size because it better suited my needs.

Renton talked me through the processes involved in forming the pleated pots (four pleats evenly spaced around the circumference) but I must admit I did not follow every word. It sounded as though he was very pleased with the results.

He described the glazes to me, wrt the mugs. The main blue, as you would likely expect, is cobalt but I think he said there was some chromium involved as well. Mugs are differently coloured inside, but I can't remember whether the pots were the same.

I was tempted myself by both colour and shape but stuck with the program I have set myself of being primarily a mug collector.

I am afraid that I did not note the prices or take a copy of the list but whatever they cost I am sure they will be a bargain.

Contact through the website badams.co.nz I guess.
