The Great Mugging (mugs, Raill, Goody)

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Tue 8 Mar - 14:30

Auckland Studio Potters held their second Ponsonby Road "mugging" on September 9th last. The mugging, as I understand it, entails accosting someone drinking a coffee from cardboard and replacing the container with a brand new, purpose made, hand potted mug.

I don't live in Auckland, and (even if I did) I am very unlikely to be found drinking coffee from cardboard, so I have missed out on this event both years.

Contributing potters from 2015 were:
Nadine Spalter, Suzy Dunser, Peter Lange, Joanne Raill, Helen Perrett, Frank Checketts, Elena Renker, Brendan Adams, Carol Stewart, Ann O'Sullivan, Tineke Walst, Simon Leong, Renton Murray, Mike Donaldson, Margaret Sumich, Chris Southern, Mark Goody and Mervyn Aitchison.

As I know Mark I have managed to obtain leftovers of his own mugging product, as seen below.

Mark can be seen making a 1915 mug on the poster in the weebly link at bottom.

Last week at the Sallies shop I found a mug by a potter I had not previously encountered, Jo Raill (appearing in a forum post as Jo-Anne Raill), complete with its original mugging accessories, an identifying name tag and a ceramic Ponsonby token. (I have not checked contributors from 2014 for this topic but do not remember Jo-Anne's name from previous reading.)
