I feel confident saying that it is not by Danlami and I haven't seen anything in reality or in books by Dan Arbeid that looks like this but I feel less certain saying that it isn't by him.

Can we see all of the base please?

Doesn't look like the same letter-style as the example in studiopottery.com

Doesn't appear to beDanlami Aliyu's mark. The example I've found has an A inside the D

You are correct Naomi but I am not convinced that the bottle vase on that website is by Dan Arbeid.

It looks very similar in glaze to a number of thrown pieces that have been put up for sale on ebay in recent months, as being by Dan Arbeid. These and the vase you mention are thrown (something he rarely did by his own admission) and are so unlike anything that I have seen by him that I wouldn't be comfortable in saying that they were his work. That doesn't mean that they are not his but I wouldn't buy them let alone attempt to sell them as Dan Arbeid's work without some real evidence. To date I have not seen that evidence.

Back to your vase RVsaid. Is the colour of the stoneware grey, as in your 2nd picture or with the browner tinge as in your first posts?

Which one? There are a few more for Danlami Aliyu. All are A inside D

Danlami's mark is as Naomi states and he wouldn't have considered making a vase such as this.

He learnt to pot at Abuja under Michael OBrien, came to Wenford Bridge under Cardew and then went to Farnham where he was taught by Henry Hammond and Paul Barron. His work was always clearly that of a follower of Cardew.

Is it the right sort of clay? The examples I've found are a heavily grogged red clay. This looks grey.

........so Oxford Ceramics say, Naomi, but likewise I have no evidence that the cylinder was made by him. Again it looks unlike any of the work by him that has a positive identification that I've seen.
