What I can say from what I can see is that it is not by Seth Cardew, which would be the obvious choice of someone looking through a studio pottery marks book.

It would be useful to have an image of bowl (?) as well if that's possible.

So not a bowl then! Laughter

The brushwork on the vase might help with an ID.

It might be by Seth Cardew, but if you compare it with a couple of examples on ebay (completed listings) there are also differences, ie, there's usually another stamp next to the monogran - for Wenford Bridge - which is missing. And this CS stamp is round, where as Seth's is square.
But marks change, and this might be an early pot of his.

Spacey began potting in Switzerland and moved to Powys in 1993. I have seen some of his work from around the time he moved to wales and it was nothing like this. Not sure he throws either. The work I know is slab built, geometric patterned and with matt glazes.

A bit after the fact, I realise, but don't think Seth Cardew, either. There's no serif terminal on the 'C' instroke as is commonly found and the 'S' is too square. Decoration doesn't look sophisticated enough, either.
