Hello  everyone!
Is anyone familiar with this pottery mark? It was attributed to Mirek Smisek, however I was unable to find any records to support that .Any thoughts?

I have the book Mirek Smisek 60 years 60 pots which has all of his marks and I don't see this mark anywhere. Nice salt glazed pot though. Cheers Ev

This may be Stephen McCarthy from Nelson. I can only find references to him online, nothing concrete, but this auction may help http://www.trademe.co.nz/a.aspx?id=826277865

Not sure if this is allowed here - but if anyone has anything by Steven McCarthy that they’d like to sell that’d be much appreciated. My grandmother has some wonderful mugs that she believes she bought from him directly in Timaru, but she’s 88 so it was a long time ago. Thanks Smile
