Does anybody know much about this potter? She seems to have been very prolific and her domestic ware is always well potted, fastidiously glazed but without a turned base. Even her cups have flat bottoms, flush with what they're resting one.

I have often wondered who made this pottery, but I have never seen a piece with a mark on it. Earthenware and glazed on stilts, low fired. The glazing has a yummy feel to it. I've never picked up a piece, but now I will just to have it in my collection. Can't find anything about her on the web, but Te Papa has some sort or record in her name.

Another couple of EB's. I don't think the blue jar had a lid.  These are very nicely made, thin and nicely glazed... just not quite my style.  I also have a few other items with signatures and glazing in a similar style.. Here is a link to the others.
