At 7.5 cm high and 8.5 cm high, these are either large teacups or small soup mugs. I am not sure. They are gorgeous, though, glossy glaze, beautiful decoration, vibrant colours. And I found 3 of them:

Hannale I am wondering if this actually Waimea Pottery. I have looked at their marks in the database and this looks different - also the cups don't look like Waimea's style as far as I am aware. What do you think? I know very little about studio pottery so I could easily be wrong about this.

I know what you mean, Maryr. If it was just the one potter working there, it would be way clearer. But it was a collective, all potters doing their own thing.
The pieces differ, clay as well as form as well as glaze. Marks differ as well, some stamped, some inscribed. I believe this to be Waimea because of the quality and because the mark is a connected W and P.
Mind you, I am open to corrections.

Woohoooo!!!
Thanks Hannele, as I was keeping any eye on that topic on Facebook, but didn't see the sticker until now.
I will add this mark to the Gallery with full confidence now and change the heading of this topic.

Another mystery solved and a zillion more to go Very Happy

I love supplying new marks (and other info) to this site. It makes me feel quite knowledgeable! Wink But most of all, it makes me feel helpful. Smile

Will you just look at these 2 mini bowls. No idea what they are meant to be, but the same decoration and glaze as my larger bowls:
