Is this the seal mark for Michael Cardew, it aint as clear to see compared to other pieces with his CM mark.

Looks a bit squashed, but yes I'd say it's his mark

There were a lot of potters are Wenford who used a personal seal, I don't think the mark is clear enough(at least in the picture) to say to be honest.

The Wenford Bridge seal is clear enough but the other seal doesn't look like Michael Cardew's. As Potty says it isn't clear and many potters were allowed to use a personal seal during their time at the pottery.

It would be interesting to see an image of the pot.

The morning after the night before for me and the second mark is clearer than when I looked previously.

I agree with philpot, it looks like Michael's grandson's personal seal.

Bought from a Chinese market trader in London who had a load of Chinese pieces but not sure if it's from one of the smaller Far Eastern countries or Studio pottery

It looks like the Picasso ceramics that got produced in the 60's. No idea how those were marked or if this is not simply a version inspired by them. Worth a web look though as the originals are very sought after.

Cheers. The finger swipes round the edge are similar to some of the Picasso copyists but the face is very different.

Doesn't seem the right glaze for Abuja, but could it be Kolonyama Pottery?

Ara Cardew has confirmed that he made it approx 25 years ago as a special commission of 100 plates.
