Waimea Potteries of Nelson used this brand name for their cast slipware.
I finally found a piece with their stamp on it .....

Mapua Ware Dsc02810
I came across this mug a while ago now, and the stamp says Tasman Ware. I am sure this is also Waimea Potteries ?? Does anyone know the answer?

And that's the handle that was used by Richmond Pottery right to the end.

Mapua Ware Empty three Mapua mugs

Post  Jeremy Ashford Mon 2 Mar - 13:27

Two marked Mapua mugs of different sizes and a tall mug or skinny tankard in the Waimea/Mapua glaze.
Mapua Ware Mapua10
_160mm H x 68 OD top_______94 x 85______________82 x 73________

The mugs are a Richmond shape often seen in a plain glaze and differ from the one above in not having a flaired top. Same Jack-Laird-Richmond-Potteries handle as above and also seen on the Temuka "latte bowls".

I recognise the glaze of the tall mug as from the same Richmond/Mapua/Waimea group but am having difficulty telling whether it is hand potted or cast. The handle looks hand-applied but of course would look that way even if cast. The inner junction of base and sides is quite sharp. It has a deep foot ring. No maker's mark that I can tell. Base not glazed. The clay is speckled with metallic glints.

All of the Mapua ware looks like slip cast ware to me Jeremy and it was Jack Laird's 'commercial' range of pottery as opposed to his Waimea Pottery Studio ware that was hand made.

So do you think the tall piece is Mapua?

Yes I do as I've seen many pieces of Mapua Ware in those colours.

Mapua Ware Empty the Killicks used a similar glaze

Post  Jeremy Ashford Wed 1 Apr - 13:50

Some ramekins on tm by John and Shirley Killicks have a glaze like the Mapua ware.

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Pottery-glass/Porcelain-pottery/Other-NZ-manufacturers/auction-863953138.htm

I see from the gallery it is indeed their mark.

Is it the same glaze?

Does the glaze have a name?

Did others use it?

Was there a connection between the Killicks and Richmond?

--------------------
While I'm here ...

I really love my Mapua mugs.
I have already drunk a great deal of coffee from the large can.
Nice to drink from and while the handle looks too small it works really well.

The similar Jack Laird handle on the Temuka latte bowl also works well.
I have been using one of those lately too.

No it's not the same glaze.
There will be two different glaze names.
Possibly both glazes were used by others.
The Killicks were hugely productive potters and produced independent from others.
I wouldn't think that they had contact with Mapua or Richmond, who were making slipcast ware.

The Killicks only made Studio Pottery and those ramekins are made by hand using stoneware clay that has an inclusion of a material that created the speckle and high fired.

Post  Bazza Wed 11 Dec - 8:12

For your info the body of the Mapua ware mugs above were made by jollying (quite-likely by me) and the handles were slip cast. The glaze is called guinea and the overall finished look depended on the consistency of the iron oxide spray that was applied to the product after biscuit firing and the firing temperature

Hi Bazza, could you take a look at this post please, as we are not sure of the maker of the keg. Many thanks Ev
