Mug and jug: Bill Schiessel?

I spotted four of these mugs at Sallies today. None in perfect condition: one repaired handle, one chipped handle, etc.

None was marked for maker either. Searching the shelves I saw a matching milk jug and two similar looking coffee pots. The pot in the same stoneware clay had a mark like the Suzanne Bloch-Jorgensen mark but rather than being an impressed stamp it is black glaze.

Only Bill would know.  I recall a listing on Trade Me where he was credited as the maker of something and he came on and huffed and puffed about it not being his mark or his work.  Although I was never sure what his mark definitely looked like, but by crikey he gets mixed up with Suzanne a lot.
