Small cut temoku vase -ebayed as ??Jim Malone

Post by newcomer1 on November 19th 2015, 5:28 pm

Bought from ebay, very attractive in my eyes and I have seen similar Malones. There is just an M or W scratched, no stamped JM. I'd just like your thoughts. It is only 9cms tall, 5.75 across the top.

I have read your advice about uploading images but after half an hour cannot get beyond the list of options beginning with Thumbnail. Sorry. I know it is hopeless without .

Other new members have had similar problems but we don't know at which point in the procedure the problem lies, or whether it's simply a matter of practice. Are you uploading from a smart phone or laptop or iPad?
Alternatively you could upload to Pinterest and post the link here.

I doubt it's Jim Malone, my bet would be that the "M" or "W" incised is some kind of glaze code for testing.

Looks a lot like Andrew Crouch to me.

I'm assuming it's this one you bought -

Not Jim Malone's mark. The mark looks handwritten which tends to point to a student potter.

We'll have to disagree on this one Naomi Cheeky

The Tenmoku glaze is good well applied, The base is finished well (it's a tiny pot), the throwing and cut sides are competent and the thickness/weight looks right.

It looks a delightful little pot but doesn't really have any of the hallmarks of Jim's work as suggested.

Can't come up with any suggestions as to who made it.

Best when you get to highlight stage copy and paste - worked for me.

I posted the links because in the past I've found photos along with my comments have been deleted.
