This is the first time that I've come across this name and wonder if anyone has any info on her.  One of the little vases has 1916 on it according to the trader, which is before most of the pioneer Studio Potters that I know of.
The vases are well executed and beautifully decorated, so these were not made by a beginner and even Olive Jones and Briar Gardner have their amateur pieces surface on a regular basis.

Ann Calhoun is the book you need--- on NZ Women in the Arts and Crafts Movement here. You can google and read on line.

Also see Douglas Lloyd Jenkins At Home for a little bit of context.
