It's not by Alan Wallwork, but I have no idea who made it.

Looks Ethnographic. The decoration is typical of Australian aboriginal art.
Valuable if it's older than 100 years. If 20th Century, then the value depends on whether or not it's signed.

Curious to know where it is now. Are you having it restored?

yes i am indeed... having said that, i also wanted to throw the bowl away.... then i spoke to my restorer and he asses it for couple of weeks and he said it can be done perfectly as the damage did not go throw the design, so am a bit delighted, so just have to wait and see how it comes out :)
