I picked this up the other day as the names rang a bell.
Though I haven't been able to find out anything about them yet!
My wires may have been crossed with Harry and May Davis from Crewenna Pottery?
This piece has been very high fired in probably an oil fired kiln.
Using Tenmoku wax resist glazing.
On the base of the little bottle is a sticker which reads -
Handmade stoneware
Else and Colin Davies
Pukenamu Road,
Te Horo Beach.

Does anyone knows anything about this couple?

Their mark .... though it is covered in glaze the outline gives a good idea of what it looks like

This is another piece by Else & Colin Davies,
Else and Colin Davies Dsc03911
the sticker is almost perished,
Else and Colin Davies Dsc03912
and the mark filled with glaze,
I found this old info from a TM auction, seems to be mostly hearsay, but may be right. http://www.trademe.co.nz/pottery-glass/porcelain-pottery/other-nz-manufacturers/auction-505774403.htm I also found that they exhibited at the NZ Academy of Fine Arts http://findnzartists.org.nz/artist/3878/
