It seems the Clay Craft moulds from the 1980s are out there.
First was the Sanderson mugs and canister:

Now I have found a sugar bowl with incised mark "AW" which is also a Clay Craft shape. See:

comparing shape
I have shrunk the Clay Craft relative to the AW to compare shape.
The Clay Craft casserole was made in a variety of sizes.
One advertised on eBay is a size between these two:

Ring-handle Sugar by "AW" (Clay Craft mould) Aw10
"AW" mark and lid. I have not found AW in the gallery.

It may not be a sugar bowl but it does have a cutout in the lid for a spoon.
The glaze is delightful. Not like any Clay Craft glazes.
So, who is "AW"?

This could be a Hobby Ceramics piece. I have seen similar glaze on what appears to be an Orzel coffee pot on trademe, and also (I forget what shape) at Blockhouse Bay Hospice shop.
