I bought this large jug as part of a NZ pottery package on tm.
(Orzel, Clay Craft, Crown Lynn.)

I have seen other items in same or very similar glaze,
but unmarked, and thought they may be Clay Craft too.

The seller in the following auction had the same idea.

The salt pig and the spoon jar are marked but the big pot isn't.

After finding the unmarked corked canisters and deciding they were
Clay Craft I am prepared to believe other unmarked items are too.

I picked up the sugar bowl today primarily to compare the glazes.
I see enough similarity to think the bowl is Clay Craft too.

Jug: 19cm H x 11 OD at base, marked Clay Craft New Zealand
Bowl: 6cm H x 9 OD at top, unmarked, scalloped lip.

A similar jug in the same glaze as my "Dad mug" is for sale on tm.

We have quite a range of Clay Craft glazes now in the various topics.
I must say this is far from my favourite, but I may add some more.

Clay Craft brown Empty BROWN DAY

Post  Jeremy Ashford Mon 2 Dec - 14:32

Today I posted a topic under the title Green Day. It's Brown Day too!
MY CL Cook & Serve brown Viking cans arrived with morning coffee,
and I picked up a couple of brown pieces on my op-shop round.

So, even though brown is not my favourite Clay Craft glaze,
that doesn't seem to stop me buying it!

The water jug, mint sauce jug, and big mug are marked Clay Craft.
The others are not marked, but their glaze, feel, and weight seem right.

The canister is from Salvation Army. I've pondered it for months,
finally accepting the likelihood that it IS Clay Craft.
135mm x 95

The teapot is from Habitat. Saw it today for the first time. Wondered.
It was really dirty and at $5 would have been cheap for a marked piece,
but it's not marked. I still have some cleaning to do,
but already I see the brown of the lid is a perfect match for the water jug.

All these brown items have been confirmed as Clay Craft.

Jim beat me to this one at Hospice.

Marked Clay Craft New Zealand.

I have seen this vase in other sizes too.

The vase below appears to be a different shape.

I thought I had had enough surprises today then found this wee-un in the 50c cupboard at John Street Traders. New wee mug on left; old big mug on right:

Three mug sizes: middle one is actually a token jar as I don't have that size yet.
