New topics: August 2016

Marymae Trench. Four bowls. Base

In August 2016, we added 20 new topics to Australian Potters’ Marks and updated two more. Among the new names are  South Australians Thelma Fisher and Rosemary Madigan of Bindara Pottery who learnt their craft by from Kelly Koster by demonstration; and Mary and William Hick who taught pottery at the Student Union of Monash University. Quite a few of the topics this month come from found examples, including work made in Queensland for sale through party plan that just have a Cooperware mark. We don’t yet yet know yet know who made and supplied the products so any information would be gratefully received. Among entries still to be written for potters from the printed directories that provided the seed data, Michel Boulay, Beverley Boulton and Kathryn Soanes were added this month. August’s group is the Darling Downs Potters’ Club and we welcome more information about their members and marks.
