Barry Singleton on Identifying Australian Pottery

In November 2016 we added 21 topics to Australian Potters’ Marks and updated Lue Pottery with some early impressed marks not previously recorded. There is a slight bias towards the ACT this month, with potters like ann Ingwersen, Cheryl Kruger and Esmee Smith who all practiced in Canberra for a time. Several quite large businesses are represented with Austware Pottery and Monkeys of Melbourne, which still has a Facebook page for collectors although the company ceased operation in 1999. We also have an entry for Kym Faehse who worked for Monkeys of Melbourne as a brush hand in the 1980s. From South Australia we now have entries for David Pedler and his mother Barbara, also a potter. Facebook gave us examples of the work of several potters including Bevan Mills of Bridgetown Pottery in the south-west of Western Australia. (Incidently, I was born in Bridgetown and still have relatives living there.)
