When talking to Pat Sinclair about her time at crown Lynn, she mentioned that Paddy worked there for a while and that he signed his work TPH. Pat couldn't remember his surname.

I thought the letters sounded familiar and finally got around to checking the mystery marks and here I am. This has to be the same potter!!

I recalled seeing photos of hand potters at Western Potters and searched around and found an article in a Crown Lynn Ceramics magazine Autumn 1976 about the pottery supply shop, Western Potter Supplies and it features both Pat Sinclair and Paddy Hancock.

A similar article is in the New Zealand Potter magazine from 1978.

I've been given a reprieve from thinking that my memory is failing Very Happy
