I can find no obvious maker for this lidded slipcast pot.
Orzel brown slipcast lidded jar. Brownp10
Pot to lip 140mm H

Orzel brown slipcast lidded jar. Lid10
Lid 101mm OD

The same item comes in other sizes too.

I have placed it by other brown items for comparison.

left to right: unknown pot; Orzel gravy jug; Clay Craft teapot and sauce jug

The colour of the glaze is closer to the Orzel than the Clay Craft.
Unlike those two it is a bit shiny.

While comparing these I realise that the Clay Craft teapot is much more shapely in its striations than any other Clay Craft item I have, yet the glaze is a match and I have had it OK-ed by a former CC employee.

I have checked the shape of the lidded pot against the Stewart brochure as well so I am running out of candidates.

I have also seen other brown items around town I cannot put a maker to but have no photos at present.

My guess is that the lidded jar is made by Orzel Smile

Yeah, Ev, thought maybe but I really didn't want it to be. I don't think it's great pottery but I had it for the sake of finding out (and a 50c investment).

I think the gravy jugs are are step or two down from the Manhattan (for example) in quality, and this even further. Or maybe that's just personal taste.

But, presuming it's Auckland, I'd kind of ruled out Clay Craft, Royal Oak, Stewart, Kermiko which is about all I know of. Which leaves Orzel and who else making this sort of slipcast?

Val's bringing Jim over tomorrow to look at my "brown": I'll see what they have to say. Val has an interest in Orzel/Adelaar too, so she may be getting a feel for it.

Do you think it should stay in "pottery related subjects" for now?
Or should we move it to "maybe Orzel" in the Orzel topics?"

I'm sure that it's Orzel so will move it over there.

The shine on this glaze always made be dubious, but now I see this for sale:

And then there's this (larger size of two) one, in full-on Orzel glazes.

It has the lovely cats-eye coloured glaze inside.
The lid is slightly larger than the brown one.
