New topics: February 2016

Whiteoak, Kathleen

Members added  nineteen new topics to Australian Potters’ Marks in February 2016 and significantly updated two. Together with our usual mixture of new finds  and potters from the seed directories, the  entry on the Whiteoak family solves several long-term mysteries; and the one on Norman Greenaway is a timely reminder that many well-known potters have parents or siblings who were also potters in their own right deserving to have their body of work recognised. While we already had a topic on the Tasmanian potter Brenda Baron, her daughter has now provided more details of her practice, and we were able to update Helen Engisch’s record with information about her partnership with  André Gavlik at the Throwers Arms Pottery. It is not always easy to separate the work of potters with similar names so we have created a joint entry for Margaret and Maggie Malone. (Information helping to clarify their relationship would be greatly appreciated.)
