During August, 14 new topics were added to Australian Potters’ Marks and two significantly updated. Long-term mystery potter ‘mh’ was identified as Margaret Holloway through judicious sleuthing by Rhonda (10kazam). Relatives contributed to the two updated topics, correcting some misinformation in previously published sources. Robert McCredie played a major role in designing, making and selling the wares signed ‘McCredie NSW’ that have been most often attributed to his sister Nell; June Dyson’s husband Colin Gordon made Dyson Studio pottery as well as managing the business; and the Dyson Studio relocated completely to Gembrook in 1959.
