Ev, if you save this seller as a favourite, you will be e-mailed as soon as they make any other listings. This way you will not miss out on the other info. Here's hoping cheers

He is Ern C. The latest questions might give you more of a clue, or confirmation.

Confirmed Very Happy
Oh I didn't know that he ran those other potteries as well ... Shocked

I agree that his records really belong in a Museum, where everyone would have a chance to research them..... *fingers crossed*

I had a look in this morning, shortly after the bidding hit $50, does anyone know the bidders? Hopefully whoever wins will make it available to the museum - copies at the least if not the originals.

Hi there, i see the clark family wants the information back. Jeff being from the first marriage, he would have worked with EC. I notice the information is photo copies right so how many is he going to photo? and do people think they can make crown lynn glazes with the info?

Post  Ev Tue 31 Jul - 18:31

The listing generated an enormous amount of interest didn't it?
Lots of questions as well.
One wonders for what reasons?
Perhaps it captured the imagination of some potters?
It certainly got Val Monks attention .... so perhaps for research reasons?
Or just because it was to do with Crown Lynn history .... which was my reason, but for the others we may never know.
Of course the recipe for the satin matt artware glaze could be trialled by anyone who knows what they are doing. Even if materials that they used are not available nearly 50 years later , it would be easy to find substitutes. Temperatures that they fired to are easily found on the web too.
John Parker has found a very apt glaze for his lathed work that looks so much like the Crown Lynn glaze.
It's a shame that Ernie didn't take up Geoffery's offer of safe keeping, but there must have been quite a few others that did the cadetship and hopefully one or two kept their notes as well?
So to answer you question signal red ..... yes I think that the winner may test out the photocopied glaze .... why not?

Post  Jackie Clark Thu 2 Aug - 18:35

Hi Ev, I was just telling Mum about this, and she said that Val is updating the book so is interviewing new people etc. She too thinks it should go to the Auckland Museum but Alan Topham says that because he was the Chief Chemist there, and Crown Lynn isn't a company, he's probably well within his rights. I guess it's the way of the world, but such a pity he couldn't give it to a place where it would be kept safely. Crown Lynn's an important part of NZ's history, and I know many people would be interested in that material.

I guess it's about ethics in the end, myself I have been given things from CL people and they will be kept until the right museum cames along. I see from Eve going to the Auckland Museum and spending time looking at document's the rest of us are in riched my her new knowledge.
