Bottle shaped vase marked JRW

Post by lindylou08 on April 15th 2015, 5:51 pm

Hi
This ? tenmoku glazed bottle has a full set of marks including what looks like the year it was made. However the only reference to a John Ward appears here    http://www.studiopottery.com/cgi-bin/mp.cgi?item=295

Unfortunately the mark shown is partly obliterated with glaze, and the description of his work doesn't bear much resemblance.  Does anyone have any ideas ??

     

Thanks

The famous John Ward (the other one) is John Douglas Ward and you are correct the work is nothing like this.

First time I've seen this mark.

No, I didn't realise that there was another John Ward, who potted.

I did in fact live in the same road as the other John Ward but that was before I knew studio pottery existed.
