Adrian Bevis

Post  Ev on Tue 15 Jun - 15:37

This pic shows an Adrian Bevis jug with his trademark pattern of a fern frond in red iron oxide.
I'm told that Adrian threw the pottery and his wife decorated the ware.
I saw an old pic of a very young Adrian working at Waimea Pottery in Nelson recently,
in a Crown Lynn Ceramics magazine Smile



This jug does not have a stamp on it.
I will find one sometime!
His mark is an AB joined together.

This Adrian Bevis coffee set in soft warm tones is from Derek's collection.

Oh wow, my Salt Pig matches this coffee set! Or close, a little lighter in tone.

Oh I saw one of these jugs in a store today and I left it there because I didn't recognise the mark, come home and search it and now I'm kicking myself for not buying it. I might have to go back tomorrow and see if its still there!

I went back to the Op Shop I saw this in and surprisingly, it was still there. So of course, I just had to buy it :-)

Wondering if the posters on this thread can re-load their photos if they still have them please, much more enlightening when the photos are there. Thanks

Are these made by Adrian Bevis?

I was about to list these mugs as we never use them, but then wondered if they were made by Adrian Bevis.

Any ideas?

Yes I can say that is his mark, though I would date the mugs as early.  I see a lot of his work when I'm touring.  He has started potting seriously again and had an Exhibition of his work on recently at his new showroom in Tuakau.
