Valeska Campion

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Thu 20 Apr - 16:47

Tripod [?] mug by Valeska Campion. 1988.

As soon as I saw this I knew it was for me.

marked Valeska '88



I'm not absolutely sure but I think this is castware.

Valeska has a strong web presence but there is very little on her pottery.
An Auckland Star article from 1979 places her as a member of the Albany Village Pottery cooperative of 12 potters.

An outdated file places her on the board of the Treasury of NZ Craft Resources Trust.
More info there:

It has been brought to my attention that Valeska was not with the Albany group. I checked and found that I had confused two references. Debbie Pointon has told me that Valeska worked on Waiheke Island "back in the day" and now lives in Raumati on the Kapiti Coast.
