Hi all,

A friend of mine put me onto the NZ Pottery website after a few conversations with him about a piece I acquired last year at the Cordy’s Guy Ngan Estate auction in Auckland. The piece is a salt-glazed group of intermeshing vaulted forms and was sold with the maker unidentified. I have spoken with Guy’s daughter Liz, who mentioned it used to sit outside the entry of their Stokes Valley home. There are no identifiable markings to suggest the maker, but we were curious whether it might be affiliated with either Roy Cowan or Juliet Peter, as formally it displayed some similarities to the lantern forms they were exploring. Some of Roy’s work featured in the auction and it was my understanding that the families were friends.

Can anyone shed some light on this mystery?

Photos to come.

That is a big question !!

I don't feel qualified to say either way, but I have seen a lot of Roy's work that is signed by him.
This doesn't appear to have the flair and finesse that Roy bestowed on his pots.
However he may have inspired this piece.

I like this piece very much for the way it surprises and keeps on going.
