Shannon Garson. Small porcelain bowl. Base. 2004

In May, we added 23 new topics. Together with the usual mixture of new finds and well-known potters like Shannon Garson and Anita McIntyre, I have started catching up with the marks recorded in issues of the Journal of Australian Ceramics. I’ve started with 54/1 and need to work back to 51/2.  Some of the potters in 54/1  like Euan Craig and Maggie Zerafa have mainly practiced overseas but I have included entries for them in Australian Potters’ Marks because of their Australian origins. The Canadian potter Kelly Austin is working on a practice-led Master of Philosophy within the Ceramics Workshop at the Australian National University and so also warrants an entry. During the month, I took time to add entries for Greg Irvine and his mother Thelma Irvine and was also pleased to find an image of Dean Smith’s mark in a recent Theodore Bruce auction. May’s group is the Stonehouse Cooperative and Gallery at Warrandyte, Victoria, and we would welcome more information about past and present members and their marks.
