Patricia Close

Pat began pottery around 1996 after searching in vain for a piece of porcelain or pottery to represent her two great danes, Gina and Suga. This was the beginning of many pottery great danes and other hand-built pieces. Pat became a valuable member of New Plymouth Potters, assisting for many years with handbuilding classes run by the club. She went on to build her own gas fired kiln when approaching her eighties and experimented with success to produce difficult in-glaze luster glazes.
