Cone Ten Down free pdf In the 1960s and 70s not only did potters flourish around the country but it seems that everyone's mum was producing mugs and bowls at night class. This phenomenon was part of a particualr philosophy of pottery - local materials and natural-looking forms, glazes and designs. All those small brown pots are now highly collectible and sought-after in op shops, second hand stores and, increasingly, at auction. Why did this style of pottery reach such heights in New Zealand? Who were the crafts people and what is the value of their work today? With over 100 photos especially taken for the book and photographs of leading potter's marks, this will be an invaluable book to the collector. Many 'characters' from that era featured in the book are still active in arts today, including Hamish Keith, Len Castle, Barry Brickell- and author Damian Skinner is particularly high-profile, with a number of major art publications out in the last couple of years.
