Mark looks a bit like Mark Griffiths, but the pot is nothing like any of his work I've seen.

Robin Hopper, Kintbury Pottery - K mark Empty Not Mark Griffiths

Yes, there's one of his pots on ebay with the mark clearly displayed and it does look similar but it didn't feel right. This mug looks more traditional in style. Maybe 1960s-70s era.

Robin Hopper, Kintbury Pottery - K mark Empty Large stoneware bowl & Lid, K mark - Robin Hopper, Kintbury Pottery

Post by ClaraIreland2 on June 8th 2018, 3:59 pm

Good afternoon, Hope you can help with identification of this large stoneware casserole bowl and lid. The glaze is superb. I did find a similar K mark - Kigbeare - on the very useful British and Irish Studio Pottery Marks site. However not the other mark which is set in a triangle. Any help much appreciated, thank you

I’ve come across the K. mark before but not IDed it. I haven’t seen it with the other mark. Kigbeare’s K is in a round stamp and anagama fired ; I don’t think this is wood fired.

Could be by Robin Hopper who potted at Kintbury near Hungerford in the 60s before moving to Canada in the 70s and set up a pottery in Vancouver until his death in 2017

By Robin Hopper. The K. mark is from his time at Kintbury Pottery near Hungerford in the 60s before moving to Canada. And it looks like his initials HR in the triangle.
