heavy raku bowl with 3 backstamps including a cross mark

This is a heavy bowl textured not sure what the material is.  It has 3 backstamps - one is a cross with some dots to one side another is a cross mark and the other is something i cant make out even with blue tac.  Any thoughts welcome?

I had an item identified as Pantasaph pottery a while back and that had three different marks, the pottery seal, Chinese Zodiac date character and the potters seal. Could be worth a check to see if that is possible option for your item as a triple mark is unsual.

It's the wrong clay for Pantasaph (thry made slipware).
I really don't know about this one. I suspect two of the stamps are just decoration. I can't make out the one on the footrim. As for the pot itself, it looks like raku.

I had a look at pantasaph but not sure its similar to their usual products. Ive had it in my shed for years and just thought it might be worth a try with you guys. Many thanks for your comments and i think you're right about the stamps and decoration. I'll pop it back in the shed for now :)

........hmm that cross looks very similar but looking at other examples of his work - they are very different.
Many thanks for still trying!!
