I still plan to visit Akke Tiemersma as I have seen some of her mugs and I like them.

In the meantime ... I picked up this Kereru on tm for $1.50.
Delighted that it arrived in the original "nest".

80mm H (to top of head)

It has a hole in the base.
I think this is for putting it on a stick in the garden, but probably helped it in the kiln too.

Akke tells me this is quite an early one.
And that the hole is for the firing.

We've just been to a friend's place just beyond Tutukaka to pick up Tomas after his New Year's party. Carolyn is a great fan of Akke's work.

Angel Dog, quite big really (see the coffee cup to the right)

I didn't realise the Angel Dog was Akke's until Carolyn told me so.
We haven't made it to the studio yet but at least found where it is today.

I thought I had posted some of this already but cannot find it. Nicole and I have visited Akke a couple of times at her studio now, first to check out her wares, and second for her to view the Yvonne Rust goblets.
On the first visit I bought the green beaker and Nicole got the pin dish, which is really handy for dressing table nick-nacks. I just bought the brown iridescent beaker from Tuatara in central Whangarei yesterday because I think Akke may not be making them anymore. When I visited the Quarry last week to see Susie Rogers I noticed new work by Akke on display including white beakers one of which I will likely buy at some stage: I think they were porcelain but I forget.

beakers about 95mm H: pin dish is only about three inches diameter
