Not R Sunny but D on top of M.

David Melville, who makes pots in a number of styles. Based in the Medway area of Kent.

If the dog model on Ebay was by him, I suspect that he would be a little cheesed off, as he sells his pots very cheaply i.e. more like 3.65 than 365.

Mark looks like David Melville, Clay and glaze is probably right, but not like anything I've seen by him.

Have just had a reply from David Melville stating he's ' guilty as charged ' in that he did commissions alongside his one offs. He can't remember making it but says it's the way he models and the mark is his

Just to add a note that there's an entry on the Studio Pottery website for David Melville that is incorrect. He says he has never used this DM mark -
