I have collected quite an amount of pottery over the last few weeks, some with marks I know, and some I don't, so will be asking if anyone knows them soon, but this one I do know
Melis van der Sluis Dsc05518
Melis has been potting full-time for around 40+ years, and was a teacher at St Paul's Collegiate in Hamilton for 6 years, qualified in art and PE. He is originally from the Netherlands and has many feathers in his cap, see and also from the Waikato Museum Ah, an artist in love with the clay and the surrounds from which it was derived - how romantic that writing is!

Melis van der Sluis Empty Vandersluis Pottery mug

Post  Jeremy Ashford Sat 16 Jan - 12:33

Mug, Vandersluis Pottery.
From Whangarei Hospice shop.
Melis van der Sluis Vander10

A slight variation on the mark.
I didn't even see the mark under the fluorescent lights when I picked it up.
Nice surprise.

Can anyone give me an idea of age here?
Melis van der Sluis mug with lovely goopy ash glaze.
I think I got this one in Dunedin at Easter, perhaps Auckland on my return.
