I keep looking but still have no idea who they are by. The clay body mix looks very Nic/Svend.

Nic Collins is a very friendly chap so maybe a couple of images via email to him might bring a result.

I know the name but hadn't seen any of his work or his mark. Potters are generally obliging folk, as Nic has shown.
