Just picked this up today, 8” jug, thick slipware line decoration, reminds me of Rob Frieke? Mark looks like horizontal lines in the circle.

Awesome work Denbydump. Much appreciated. Surprisingly I don’t think I’ve had pieces of his before unless there are some lurking in my shed. Thank you!

Hi

Saw it last week and forgot to photograph it. Eliptical circle with two dots, DP was my take and it was on a light brown clay piece.

Cheers

Excellent spot on, many thanks. I also saw his other mark at the same time so two solved there. John Pollex - Page 2 D2459a10

John Pollex - Page 2 Empty Boldly coloured jug, - John Pollex.

This is a very brightly-coloured little jug which came in a job lot.  It has an impressed mark which is clear but unhelpful, except to confirm an identification once the manufacturer is recognised.  The base has a combed pattern of wavy lines which looks German to me.  It looks a bit Art Deco era but also 1950's German, when pottery seemed to have an exuberant and very decorative quality.  Does anyone have an idea about it?  The closest I have come to seeing something similar in google images is Schramberg, Elfie Sandberg, 1950's.  I love it whatever it is, but would really like to know!

Sorry about no photograph of the base, I was having trouble with the uploading!
NaomiM - wow, definitely John Pollex!  I've had a look at other threads and some show the same impressed mark, the same combed base, and of course the same distinctive bold colours.  So not German, not Art Deco, not 1950's, fairly recent English studio pottery but still highly desirable, in my opinion, and I want more of his work, maybe a mug from ebay.  I was misled by two other pieces from my job lot, which are definitely German Art Deco, one of which has been identified on this forum as a 1930's hatpin holder, and the other one is soon to be uploaded for help.
There is so much knowledge available on this forum, longstanding problems solved so quickly, it's wonderful.  I have a big backlog of unidentified pieces to get through, will have to ration myself to a couple a week.
Many thanks, I couldn't have identified this on my own!

His slipware is wonderful, and the more recent work is so different from his earlier style of slipware; but I like both types. Definitely on my wish list.

Yes definitely John Pollex. He used to do traditional slipware until circa 83/84, and then did this beautiful multi-coloured slipware. As you said, his work is desirable. Ebay is the guide for prices on his work, as it comes up in small quantities fairly regularly there. His work is instantly identifiable.

Well, I hope I will be able to spot a John Pollex piece now, although there won't be many pieces to be found in my usual hunting grounds, car boots and charity shops (all closed down now, alas).  I wonder how it made its way into my job lot of mainly glass, including Georgian, as well as the two art deco pieces of pottery.  I don't have much use for a jug but I will keep it for a while, meanwhile looking out for a brightly coloured mug going unnoticed (I hope) on ebay, which I could use every day and enjoy the exuberance.  There was one in the recently sold listings I might have gone for, if it had come up after I knew the name, and sold for about £7.  Sometimes one can get lucky!
The joy of mixed job lots, usually sadly house clearances, is that they don't appeal so much to dealers, who tend to specialise, and avoid unidentified items.  When I get a job lot I spend hours researching the different items and learning about a wide variety of subjects, in this case glass, from Georgian dwarf ale glasses to Victorian penny licks, as well as German Art Deco and unexpectedly, a bit about modern English studio pottery.  
It seems that there is probably at least one expert in almost every style and topic online here, so my fruitless hours of scrolling through google images will be much reduced, and I can get on with collecting and appreciating (and also sometimes selling) what I find, as well as sharing my treasures with people who appreciate them, something lacking at home!

John started out potting with Colin Pearson, which was a completely different style but has been based in Plymouth for almost 50 years, so he is "down your way".
