This heavy 32cm bowl (my fruit bowl now) I bought a few years ago Op shoppin, & I think it was from an exhibition Pete had at the Craft Quarry here in Whangarei about 2000.
I think the exhibition was called 'Slow but Rough' & this group of bowls his 'Nikau Series'.  I remember wanting one!!!...........& yeah then I dropped something heavy on it and broke it, Ive been gutted since.. pale  cat

There are two marks in the Potters Marks book for Peter Alger.
One is sort of like a three leaf clover and the other looks like a schnapper.
That doesn't mean that he only had two marks though, so lets hope that someone comes along that can confirm this mark and beautiful bowl are his.

I was trying to find some info on Peter and his mark, and came up with this link - https://www.google.com/search?q=peter+alger+mark&hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-US:%7Breferrer:source?%7D&rlz=1I7TSAU&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=zipmUcigFJGdiAfKlYCoCg&ved=0CF0QsAQ&biw=1366&bih=643 - Careful! geek It gets weird the more you scroll down, even the incredible hulk

Bye the way, some of the potters marks shown are from our site sunny

Not Peter A but then who? Toby Stafford Empty No its not Peter's mark..

Post  Kat & Co. Tue 28 May - 9:07

So best thing to do was to contact Peter & ask him &
although this bowl is his style.. its not Peters,
which makes me feel a bit better about breaking it! Rolling Eyes
Peter said he doesnt recognise this potters mark either.
so that leaves it a mystery potters mark on a lovely bowl,
& I would still like to know whos mark this is.. Suspect
