Welcome to the Forum, Rousky.

I know that you say that the pot isn't marked but we always like to see their bottoms. Embarrassed

Ooooh, the H-word. I wouldn't even like to hazard a guess, other than saying shino glaze and Japanese or Japanese influenced.
Without a mark and/or a signed box you'd need an expert to positively ID it as a Hamada, eg, his son or Phil Rogers.

The decoration on this vase is a variation of the old English slipware "Boney Pie" pattern and, although Hamada may have seen this during his time in St. Ives in the early 1920s, it wasn't something that I have ever known him to try.

The brown iron glaze on this vase is also not a glaze that Hamada used very often, much preferring a blacker iron glaze (with more iron - usually 12%+ of iron oxide), which is referred to as Kaki glaze. Kaki is used by other potters to describe an iron brown glaze such as that on your jar but Hamada would not have called it kaki.

The shape of this vase isn't one that Hamada's vase makers produced (almost all of his pots were thrown or made by his workers, with the exception of his teabowls, which he threw as well as decorated). Also the cutting of the vase sides isn't typical.

Looking at your image there is nothing to suggest that it wasn't made in the UK but an image of the base is really important to confirm that or suggest otherwise.

The foot of a pot is very important to the Japanese and the total lack of any foot rules it out being Japanese, even if anything else pointed to that.

Sadly, it doesn't give any clues to who made it either......... so unless the person who made it happens to come this way, I think it will remain as a British studio pottery jar by unknown maker.

Ok that is great. Can you tell by the type of clay what part of the country it was made in ?
Thanks

As SP says, the base rules out a lot of options, even if it doesn't ID the pot. The lack of a mark could indicate a 60s-70s potter who stuck a label on the base instead. We'll have to hope another turns up with its label intact

It's just a standard stoneware body that was most likely bought from a national supplier and, as Naomi suggests, it could have had a sticky label with the potter's information attached when new.

It was no doubt made by a follower of the work produced at Bernard Leach's pottery but I would be very surprised if it was made by anyone who had worked there.
