North Shore Craft Group

Devil

In April, we must have had time on our hands as we added a record 32 entries. These are an interesting mix of new finds, potters whose works we know well like Phillip McConnell and Edward and Margaret Shaw, and potters whose marks we still only know from the printed directories. (One of my aims in 2015 is to have as many of these as possible converted to linked entries.) David and I bought a small collection of Queensland pottery which included two fine pieces by Toowoomba potter Stephen Day, one of the original Friary Pottery trainees. He is now known as Devil, meriting a separate entry in Australian Potters’ Marks. Les Peterkin contacted me and provided a number of images to add to his entry.  (I particularly love the seafood platter.) An eBay listing for a John Van Dyk lidded bottle helped us to solve yet another of our long-term intractable marks. This month’s group is the North Shore Craft Group and we would welcome more information about past and present members and their marks.
