Submit ID request

There has been a recent increase in the number of pots submitted to for identification.

If you have a ceramic work that you cannot identify perhaps the combined knowledge of Ceramics NZ members could help.

Each submission in the pot identification forum can be accompanied by an image to illustrate the work. Submissions may be replied to and each reply may also include one image.
