I think it may be Noreen Ibbott a Scottish potter from Livingstone, West Lothian.
Are your pieces earthenware?

Dantheman .... Thank you for you reply, I am not quite sure how to tell earthenware?

The initials don't look like an NI more an NN or NM I think but I will double check and maybe post a right way up close up!

Thanks again

Pip

As a graphic designer it has been bothering me they are upside down ...... it is an I-phone problem all it's photos come onto the mac upside down I've realised!
In future I will put them into I-photo and rotate and follow your advice on just adding a thumbnail link.

Thanks very much for your help and I am sorry for your neck!
