Yes.
This is from the big bowl.  The signature is uncannily similar to that of Mary Rich's before she started signing her full name.

I believe she still uses her "M" mark? though your right about her signing larger pieces.

The main difference is that Micki's M is larger and a more rounded/curved shape.

Micki Schloessingk Empty Tall salt glazed vase by Micki Schloessingk

Post by lizzy1 December 18th 2017, 8:05 am

Hi all - I'm new here but already getting addicted!  I recently bought a job lot of pots and couldn't identify one: the shape is fairly primitive but the glazework is really nice; as it has stamps it looks like a studio product rather than a hobby piece; if the pics don't come out properly, there is a stamped 'm' which looks like the top half of a heart; a double curve with the 'legs' curving so that they would make a heart if continued.  The other mark is a circle in a circle with possibly a lazy 's' or it could be a flaw.  The base is unmarked except for three paler stilt spots.  This is also my first time with the image uploader; I can't see any pics, but I'll hope they made it.

Im not seeing a heart in the m mark so I don't think it's Mark Smith. Looks more like Micki Schloessingk's m mark and style of pot.

Thank you NaomiM, that's a match!  I googled her other stuff and the mark matches, the splashed commas crop up in her work repeatedly and she has made other tubular slab pots!

Definitely Micki. She is one of the very few female potters who do wood fired salt glazed work. Its studio pottery where its the glazing effects from the firings that are prized.

Many thanks Philpot; your pieces are lovely! The pics of mine don't show properly how lovely the different textures as well as colours are! Here's one more view; of the other side as it is decorated on both: Micki Schloessingk P1080017

It is indeed. Her work is extremely undervalued, so we have been able to build up a good collection of her work.

Definitely a keeper; she’s been top of my wish list for a while. Very happy to see she’s now selling online via her website. That at least is one consolation of Covid19; the number of potters who are selling direct when before they’d rely on selling via fairs and galleries. Galleries need to pull their socks up; far too many haven’t updated their websites to online purchases, and if they do put up a photo of exhibition items, and an ‘enquire about availability’ you’re lucky to see a price. Nothing I hate more than enquiring blind, and finding it’s out of my price range or already sold

I will have to check some potters online. I would agree with you about galleries. Before Covid a lot of them had fairly poor websites, with many of the faults you noted. Now time and Covid have caught them out.

Clay College Stoke and The Leach Pottery both have good online stores and rolling exhibitions of both new and established potters. Plus Sladers Yard, and Thrown which seems to be a potters’ cooperative
