Elena Renker

Post  Ev on Sun 29 Nov - 17:14

Elena has been winning heaps of awards in the last few years with her shino glazed tea bowls and containers.
Here is an earthenware teabowl with a magnificent black glaze with lovely white brushwork...


Oh no her mark came out blurry - I will have to take another shot of it!

Hope this one is ok....

Any chance of a pic Tim?
I think I got that piece 3 or maybe 4 years ago.
Her work has developed during those years so she may have a new mark.

Tim's Elena Renker mark is very different to the one that I have put up a photo of -
though Tim's one matches one of the marks for Elena in the Potters Marks book.

Here is a link to her site - a pity that she doesn't show her marks though.

current mark for GALLERY

Elena Renker mug.

approximately 95mm H x 80 OD top, marked

Recent work showing current mark.

Purchased new from Collect in Crummer Road.

I had thought from the website, which appears not to have been updated since 2011, and her etsy store, which is empty, that Elena was not producing, but I was advised by Collect when I was there end of last month that she had been in recently with a new batch of mugs.

This particular mug may have been on Collect's website earlier than that. It was pure coincidence that when I selected from a full shelf that I chose one of only two on the site: pattern, size, shape, and handle all worked for me.

Burning Issues has three pieces by Elena, including what could be a tea bowl, but I was out cycling today when I visited the shop and didn't have my specs so I couldn't see what sort of mark they had, if any.

Its yummy in blue aye... Cool
Edit: a potter friend says its woodfired but that its possibly not salt glaze just a reaction by the cobalt blue in the glaze Kiln.
