Signature looks about right to me anyway.

Clay / glaze / throwing looks about what I'd expect for his earlier work.

Going by the date and the BSPM Book, it may have been an item he produced towards the very beginning of his pottery career, as the first pottery he run seems to have been at Spruce Bank from 1969-75? Maybe even as he was training? (BSPM is not always correct by the way)

100% genuine , Lyons Graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1965 , he was also a singer with the Scottish Opera , Hence "the singing Potter " Tag he has , early work was exhibited at the Paisley Museum that has some of the finest works anywhere , He potted in Wanlockhead for a time as well but I don't know the dates of that , How big is your bowl ?

Moffat pottery vase with inscribed mark

Post by GloriaB on February 17th 2014, 4:17 pm

I wondered if anyone else had a piece of Moffat pottery with an inscribed mark on the base?
My vase has: Moffat  K.K. 74   13-8 74 written into the clay on the base.
I have other pieces of Moffat pottery with impressed marks but I've never seen one like this before.
