Signature to ID

Post by Benoit on March 11th 2017, 8:56 pm

Hi.  I bought this vase in Canada, however I can't find the name of the potter neither I can read it!  Any info? It looks Japanese to me...

Welcome to the Forum.

The signature doesn't look very Japanese to me and, even if the potter is Japanese, the 97 suggests it was made in N. America in 1997.

I've never seen it here in the UK either but the clay body also points to it being from Canada or the States, as that doesn't look typically European and certainly not Japanese.

Can't be any help with the mark, I'm afraid, but maybe someone else will be able to.

Might be by a Japanese-Canadian potter. Looks like DK initials
