The first mug is clearly marked "RK" with two dots, maybe three, and "1/1".

The second mug in the same body and glazes is less well executed.

Larger is about 90mm H, smaller about 70.

Pretty sure they're by the same person.
Ross & Kay Palmer Rk310

Apart from the obvious, the handles have the same two-finger press at top.
The body appears to match, seen through a bit of dirt on the smaller.
The clay is white and fine, with a sparkle like vitrified/porcelain and some very fine dark speck.

Bought about a month apart at Whangarei hospice shop, presumably the work of a Northlander.
From here:

It's no wonder I couldn't find it in the gallery. Who would look under P for RK!
Potters marks says Taupo for the Palmers.

It would appear from the internet that Kay Palmer died this year.

l bought the Ferret's RKP mug and this morning I found that I had another on the shelf (unmarked for maker) with the same decoration, so I now have four mugs by Ross and Kay Palmer:
