  1. I never met Judith in person, but I always counted her as someone I knew.

    She taught me a lot about collecting pottery & was always willing to share her knowledge.

    I know how loved she was in the world of pottery collectors.

    I’m sure she will be missed.

    Bye Judith

    Thanks for the pots

  2. I knew Judith from her earliest days in Canberra
    She was a wonderfully kind and generous woman with outstanding talents and I am very sad we lost contact some years ago. She will be greatly missed.

  3. I’ve known Judith (and David) for close on 17 years. Over those years Judith was such an inspiration to those of us who collect Australian pottery. Always ready to share her vast knowledge with all, and was a really good friend to me.

    Judith spent countless hours creating Australian Potters’ Marks, which will be her lasting legacy. Hundreds of people did not know Judith personally, but have benefitted from this outstanding contribution to the Australian pottery world.

    RIP Judith. Sadly missed.

  4. We each met Judith in Canberra in 1974 as young graduates starting our careers. We remember her back then as being somewhat reserved, but very intelligent and with a whimsical sense of humour (which she never lost).

    After leaving Canberra we kept in touch with Judith and David when they visited Melbourne. We also visited them from time to time in both Canberra and Bemboka. We much appreciated their hospitality, the beautiful meals prepared by Judith, her sage advice on life matters and the great conversation.

    Judith developed a wide range of interests, chief amongst them being Australian pottery, a passion she shared with David. We were always so impressed, but not surprised, by her creation and maintenance of the wonderful Australian Potter’s Marks database.

    Judith was a dear friend and will be sorely missed.
