Large pouring jug stamped MD ?

Post by merlin on November 11th 2017, 11:31 am

Unsure if this is marked MD...if so possibly then Mike Dodd...?

Any help with identification appreciated...!

I don't think it's Mike Dodd, but the glaze is typical of early Muchelney and The Friars Aylesford Pottery. Possibly the latter. A photo of the base to check the clay may help to ID it.

Interesting, cheers. Not Aylesford or Muchelney then. But still a Leach glaze...

A tad baffling then Naomi...!

I'm still not sure about the stamped letters...definitely M something...!

As i am a complete novice, as you can surely tell, what might a 'leach glaze' imply...?

Just means it's one of the glaze recipies they used back in the 60s-70s, developed, I think, by David Leach. It had a distinctive way of breaking, leaving those little black lines in the whiter glaze.
