Eddie Puruntatameri trained with a few noted studio potters that included Les Blakebrough at Sturt Pottery in 1972, before returning to Bathurst Island, Northern Territory to establish a pottery studio with John Basco Tipiloura.
This plater depicts a pelican. Two circles containing a dotted line encircle it near the rim in blackish glaze. This blackish glaze has split and contracted into array of small dots. The clear surface glaze has an unusual effect of raised angular lines, in a network that appear similar to crazing. Engraved beneath: E.P. 1975.
