This pottery made heaps of vases and at last I found one that didn't cost the earth.  
There is just a sticker to show who made it, which would be easily lost when washing the vase. The piece is extremely thin, which would be a tell tale signature of the maker I feel.

I love this vase. 24.5 cm high. It is decorated in a matt finish. Looks like paint rather than glaze, but I am not sure. Somewhere I have a pic of another one by the same maker; it was very ho-hum so I just snapped a pic on my phone.

The glaze is very unusual as it has texture.
I want to use the word 'flocking' but I don't really know if it is that or not ....?

Hmm flocking.. I am not conversant with the finer terminology for glazes. Hopefully someone will know. Meanwhile here is my other pic, some carefully graduated spraying of colour but it didn't rock my boat so I left it in the shop. Both Flaire vases I have seen have these black felt spots on the base.

I was listing this wee statue of a heron today, (I just have to clear out some of my pottery so I have room for my CL Twisted Evil ) and realised I have not shared it. It is 195mm high, has a very matt finish and has a chocolate and copper spray on the wings, reminds me a little of Salisbury.

Very cool Flaire vase - and sticker for gallery Empty Flaire figures

Post  Lian on Thu 4 Jul - 9:17

Hi, I have just purchased these two figurenes from a local op shop. I was drawn to them because they are so unusual. I have searched the net and found your forum post and was wondering if you are able to tell me anything about them. They are quite large standing about 450mm in height. They have the same sticker Flaire and felt pads on the bottom. Would really appreciate some insight into their origins.

Wow that's very unusual and most impressive. I haven't seen it before.
We haven't found any info regarding this pottery ... yet, but the pots they made give a good indication that they knew what they were doing and they come across as very professional.

Very cool Flaire vase - and sticker for gallery Empty Thank you for your prompt response

Post  Lian on Thu 4 Jul - 11:17

Would it be worthwhile me posting it to some other topics on the forum to see if anyone else has come across it? Or would that post cover that. Sorry I am quite new to forums and not sure how it works.

If anyone is looking for info about Flaire Pottery and do a search on the internet or on here, they will find your post, so there is no need to put it elsewhere. It is really stunning!!

That heron must be a stock blank - you see them with all sorts of decorations with various decorator's stickers. The interesting human figurines I have never seen before. I am not sure whether Flaire made any of their own castware or whether they decoratoed blanks made by others.

Very cool Flaire vase - and sticker for gallery Empty Wall pocket in teal colour

Post  JanPots on Sun 14 Jul - 15:54

Was at the Mum in laws yesterday and she wanted help moving a few things around on her wall.
Anyway...I lifted this down and saw it had its sticker " Flaire New Zealand "
The texture felted odd...rather like fabric with a rough feel to it.
Not my style but I thought I'd add to the thread.
Size: about the size of a BB plate
