New topics: May 2017

Iris Galbraith Pony

During May 2017 we added three new topics to Australian Potters’ Marks and updated two more. The small number of new entries this month is partly my fault as I have been engaged on other things, but we do seem to have reached a point in the Australian Potters’ Marks Project where entries are becoming harder to source.  Luckily, our entry on Iris and Vic Galbraith was updated in May with information supplied by their daughter Jane Galbraith. Jane has  been adding new images of her parent’s work to Flickr and it has been a delight to see a fuller range of their hand built animal figures.

Here are the topics added or updated in May 2017:

  1. I have a beaut lidded pot that is signed Joanne Cranitch. It certainly looks to be Aussie pottery. It’s not in gotheborg, searchable on here or on Google. Anyone heard of her?

    • Hi Lee, we don’t have an entry yet for Joanne Cranitch on Australian Potters’ Marks. Like you, we haven’t been able to find anything about her on the Internet or in the printed journals and directories. You would do best to post images of this pot either on The Australian Studio Pottery Collectors’ Group on Facebook or on the Identifying Australian Pottery group on Flickr where members of these groups may know more. Regards, Judith

      • Guess what…I did that already and got no reply whatsoever, even bumping it twice. Not even a like or a comment. I told them to stick it and deleted the site. There ya go. I thought this would be a more helpful site than bloody facebook.

      • Well, perhaps that is because no one has any information…

      • Hi Lee, we work closely with facebook and share many of the same members. If you got no comments it is probably because nobody had anything to say. It is better to leave the images up than to delete them as they can still remain part of the knowledge base and, sooner or later, we may learn more.
