Two Blue Salt Glaze Cups - Mark Smith

Post by stardust* on January 30th 2016, 9:39 pm

I don't know what to think about these, they look like work I've seen of Walter Keeler but the mark is possibly Michael Casson?   Help please.
I think they are a good find, I'm crossing fingers...even though they are a bit impractical for drinking out of.
Please not hobby potter....not with that bottom!

Thank you Naomi and Dantheman

Noticed we have none of Mark's current work on this page, so I've asked him for permission to add a few of his pictures (below)  Most Excellent

Lots more great pictures on his Facebook page.

More info on his website.
www.marksmithceramics.com

Just agreed to buy the Orca Whale on the left
