Michael (Mike) Rogers - 18 April 1952 - 18 April 2017

Some people stand out by their sheer physical presence; others are remembered because of their lively personality; and sometimes it is the humility and generosity of spirit that are remembered. Michael (Mike) Rogers will be remembered fondly for possessing all these characteristics. At well over 1.8 metres tall, eternally optimistic and generous to all he will be remembered with fondness by many in Nelson and throughout New Zealand

In an article about the closure of South Street Gallery Mike was recently described as the ‘go-to man’ of ceramics. But, in so many ways, he was much more than that phase can encapsulate. In his sixty-five years he was a husband, father, grandfather, manager, coach and mentor.
