Brian Paul Bearne or Emily Myers? Rough Glaze Exterior Rich Blue interior

Please help me to identify the maker of the bowl shown in the attached photographs. I have seen Emily Myers mark but I have not the experience to distinguish between the above potter's marks and mine. †I thought maybe Mr. Bearne's because of the treatment but the blue does look Islamic? †many thanks

Myersí mark is quite small so I think we can rule that out. It doesnít look much like Bearneís usual style of pot, but there arenít many examples of his work for comparison so itís still possible. A third option is the late Mike Steveni. His wife, Dinah Steveni is still potting so worth asking her

An update. I contacted Ms. Steveni as you suggested and she very kindly provided the following information. Apparently both she and her late husband used a screw head to impress their marks and a D, or M to distinguish their works - Mr. Steveni's early pieces (86-90) would not have had an initial with the single screw head mark unlike the double mark on my bowl. Neither ever used the surface treatment on my bowl or turned a foot ring in that style. (By the way this research has led me to Ms Steveni's website of superb ceramics and paintings which is well worth taking a view. I shall be returning.)
