Two Round Images

The Chinese tenmoku bowl with the leaf is a wonderful example of this type of pottery.  I am not sure whether it is modern or ancient but I wouldn't mind owning it.  The sun picture is a still image taken from a TV screen.  It just seemed to be so unusual.

More NZ Potters Work

These two works are by local or ex-local potters.  The small pieces are by Annette Bull from Clive who hasn't been potting for very long but is doing some interesting work.  The sculptural piece is by Liz Earth who used to live in Hawke's Bay but now lives in Waikanai in the Wellington district.  Liz has always done interesting although sometimes strange work.

More from NZP Exhibition

Two more images from the NZ Potters Exhibition.  The sculptural piece with cranes is by Yi-Ming Lin from Leeston in the South Island of New Zealand.  It is one part of a group of three which made a beautiful set.  The black and white pieces are by Jenny Shearer from Paraparaumu Beach near Wellington.

New Zealand Potters Exhibition

The New Zealand Potters held their annual exhibition in Havelock North recently.  There were some interesting pieces shown and it was overall a very good exhibition.  The top picture shows a group of luster pots made by Chris Dunn of Wellington, the second image shows work by Maureen Allison of Whangamata. Maureen digs her own clay and with only minimal processing creates her pieces and then wood fires them.  All potters should try doing this at least once in their potting career.
