I picked up this bottle the other day as the glaze reminded me of a few different NZ makers. The green body and base could look like Putaruru and the trickle from the top looks very much like some Orzel that I have. The design is a little Egyptian inspired...a series of eye shapes joined together underneath by a loop to every second eye. Another eye pattern around the neck. This is very large as can be seen next to the Orzel. Any comments welcomed.

It looks like there are throwings rings on this bottle.
Could it be made by hand? Or can you see signs of it being slip cast Mike?

Thanks for looking Ev. Here is a closer view and the base. Rings are quite pronounced and the sides have a couple of bulges. No obvious joints so a little hard for me to tell. Potted by hand, not cast?

It is possible, but I can't be sure unless I can hold it and look at it in the flesh.

The bottle is not a shape that I recognise as Orzel.
