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.

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

I was about to list these mugs as we never use them, but then wondered if they were made by Adrian Bevis.
Adrian Bevis Dsc00212
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.

I was wondering if this could be his work:
Adrian Bevis Dsc01529
Adrian Bevis Dsc01530

I now have 3 of those and use them as tea caddies.

You are very welcome, Ev.

You know, when I first saw it, in less than perfect light, I read this as Brian instead of as Adrian. Next day it was in a different place, different light, and I saw what it really said.
