Waimea Pottery - Page 2 Empty more Waimea CASTWARE

Post  Jeremy Ashford Sun 2 Oct - 11:17

Anne,
Can we have a copy of your mug for the forum:
http://www.trademe.co.nz/pottery-glass/porcelain-pottery/other-nz-manufacturers/auction-1173240010.htm

I have seen the shape on trademe before and questioned the seller about it on a prior listing. Clearly the handle is cast or pressed but the WP mark on the base is inscribed rather than impressed or cast in so I am unsure about whether they are cast handles applied to a handthrown mug or cast in their entirety.

The other listing:
http://www.trademe.co.nz/pottery-glass/porcelain-pottery/other-nz-manufacturers/auction-1173028049.htm

Apart from the Totara wines bottle earlier in this topic we have not seen castware from Waimea, only what is branded "Mapua Ware".

Totara Cafe bottle in this topic:

Richmond Pottery was Jack Laird's big venture into slipcast ware Jeremy.

Yes.
But these cups are marked WP.

Anne's is dated 1991.
I know Richmond closed after being taken over by Teal but I'm not sure of the dates: these mugs may have been made after Richmond closed, thus the WP mark. Also, I think they have a different clay body.

Anne's one does look like a Richmond glaze, I think, and the Totara bottles like Mapua ware.

The deco on the mugs in the other auction reminds me of some of the Paul Laird designs.

I will add this to the gallery Jeremy, I just hadn't got around to it. I believe this was made by Paul Laird, just as I believe the items in the auction that have the same handle are also made by him. Paul did a range of mugs, cups and saucers, jugs etc in this architectural design using his own mark too. They were often highlighted with a gold lame finish such as below.
Waimea Pottery - Page 2 2015tm10
I have been trying to work out if the hand marking on the base has any relation to the potter, but not all pieces marked WP & PL had the same hand. This was confirmed yesterday, when I spoke to a collector of Waimea Pottery from Marlborough. He had worked at the Nelson Museum, and had know Jack and Peggy Laird quite well. They told him that the person who signed the bases was usually not the potter, but someone who worked further down the line at the time, sometimes the glazer, etc.
As for the fish plate, besides the Richmond and Mapua wear, there was also Mahana Ware, but it must not have been made in any great amounts, as I never see any of it around.

I think Anne said her same shape mug above was 1991, Val. I think it was Anne.
Almost right. Anne's mug is marked 1991.

My guess before hearing that was, that as it is marked WP and appears to be castware, it would have been after Richmond Pottery was closed down, and I still haven't checked the date for that.

I can't see the Lairds having much to do with Richmond after Teal took over.
Gail Lambert/Henry may have some info about that. Keith Sandford was unclear on dates when I spoke to him.

Here is another hand-thrown Waimea Pottery item. I bought it because I love it and now I am too afraid to use it - i cook with my good old clunky Temuka casseroles which survive anything except being dropped on the floor! This casserole is about 20 cm tall and quite narrow.

PS admin - there are a couple of pics on page one of this thread which could go in the new gallery.

Hi there, I came across this lovely little plate today, it has the trademark WP and is signed ‘Mahana’. Wondering if it is Waimea Pottery and who the artist might have been, thanks.

Hi there, Mahana was one of the brand names used by Waimea Pottery.

We have a category and a Gallery that includes Mahana.
