Found this mug in Waikanae, Kapiti Coast. It looks somewhat like Mirek Smisek’s mark.

Yes Mirek, stamp is correct and the wire marks on the base & the decoration are a bit of a giveaway. Looks like it may be a second though not quite perfect.

Hi Chef. Thank you for your spot on reply. Ev kindly identified Mirek’s mark on a vase I submitted a month or so back so when I picked up this mug I was reasonably sure it was Mirek’s. The decoration and wire marks were new to me and I appreciate your clear comment as well as picking up on it probably being a second. I agree but I’m pleased nevertheless to have a piece of his work.
I met Mirek a number of times over the years when I was doing wine tasting work in local supermarkets but wasn’t familiar with his work although I knew he was famous for his Crown Lynn and other work.
By chance do you have any ideas of the mark on the other mug I submitted a few weeks back?
Cheers, Kitsch

No idea on the mug, it would have been identified by now either by Ev or one of the other members.
Interestingly you posted a mark on 31 Jan that is the same on a large platter I have. I did post it in the NZ studio pottery FB group but no luck as to who made it.
