The benevolence of Crown Lynn

The benevolence of Crown Lynn

Post  Ev on Thu 4 Feb - 17:38

From 'A New Zealand Potters Dictionary by Barry Brickell
Bernard Leach was sponsored by Crown Lynn Potteries in January 1962 to come to New Zealand.

From 'The First 25 years - Auckland Studio Potters.
Bernard Leach was given a civic reception in Auckland. He inspected the Crown Lynn works and was given a reception there as well. Bernard lectured to groups all over the country and even managed a trip to Coromandel to visit Barry Brickell's pottery.

I have read this booklet before..... but this bit didn't sink in!

The First 25 Years - Auckland Studio Potters.

In 1975 it was Crown Lynn .... well Tom Clark really, who lent Auckland Studio Potters the money at no interest until they could afford to repay it and then at only 5% for the setting up of their building etc.
Tom also provided them with all the bricks needed for the terrace.

This hadn't sunk in either ......... YAY !! 1000 posts and what awesome posts these last two are!

Ruth Court remembers the above and also adds that she met Tom Clark at a cocktail party where he told her of his love for pottery. He said that if he had to choose between yachting and pottery - it would be pottery that would win.
