Hi Ev
I think I may still have the email from Paul re Anna Gandy, I will check. There is an article in one of the old NZ potter mags on her; again I will have to check.

Thanks Ali.
I did find an article on Paul Melser that I probably read when it came out and it stuck in my mind. NZ Potter vol 14/1 1972

Found the email reply from Paul re the ginger jar with both their marks, extract here- not sure if it answers your question though Ev.

It is indeed one of mine and Anna's. It would have been made sometime between 1970 and 1974. Anna and I worked together during this period in Featherston, Wairarapa. It would have been fired in a diesel kiln. All the pots either of us made were stamped with both of our stamps.
Anna now lives on Waiheke Island and stopped making pots when she moved there. I used to make quite a few of those pots with that ginger jar sort of lid but haven't done so for many years.

Thanks chef.
Going by this article in New Zealand Pottery it appears that they were living together in 1972 ...
New Zealand Potter volume 14 number 1 Autumn 1972
One cottage is occupied by a widow, the other by potters Paul Melser and Anna Gandy. Paul first began potting in Wellington .........
