Western Australian Ceramics 1970-1999


The videorecording Ceramics in Western Australia, 1970-1999 : Everyday Changes (Edith Cowan University, Churchlands, W.A, 1999) contains images of works by over 65 Western Australian potters. These range from early studio potters like Eileen Keys through woodfirers like Greg Crowe and Stewart Scambler to tableware makers like Jenny Dawson and Jonathon Hook. Many have entries in Australian Potters’ Marks but we don’t yet have marks recorded for 24 of the potters. These names have now been added to the alphabetic and state lists with the hope that fellow collectors can provide images of marks. Illustrated:  Slipcast vase by Mike Calder, a Canadian-born potter who arrived in Western Australia in 1968.

Names added to Australian Potters’ Marks: Robert Bell, Graham Bond, Mike Calder, Gina Cinanni, Gigi and Kate Cosi of La Maiolica,  Paul Counsel, Jean Ewers, Beverley Gallop, Joss Gregson, Dave Hunt, John Johnson, Bela Kotai, Robyn Lees, Helen Manson, Heather McSwain, Frank Morris, Keith Rutherford, Jill Smith, Eva Souness, Myra Staffa, John Teschendorff, Mab Vandeth, Valeska Wood.
