I believe that it's by John Davidson, who potted around New Mills/Truro. Probably from around 1980.

Fabulous. A really elegant bowl. What is the best site for identifying marks? I got a couple of pieces today and was sure I had seen the marks before but have had no luck identifying them (yet!)

If you have a copy of the British Studio Pottery Marks book then that's a good start, but, tbh, this forum is one of the best places for identifying marks. Pop them on ID My Pottery and we'll see if we can help.

That is nice. Very highly accomplished. It really is a very great shame that so many brilliant potters make gorgeous work which is just not really recognised or very much appreciated.

these are similar to our mystery AW marked bowls, I wonder if there's a connection?
