No idea, not one I recognise.

Reminds me a bit of the glaze on Ed Wills pot, also remind me a bit of Derek Davis.

I bought it in a charity shop in South Lincolnshire because the glaze looked interesting........... and I thought, "Potty will definitely know."

It's down to the rest of you now!

Js or fs , there was a jane barker (Nee Searle) in the book , but work not similar unless she did different styles , but too long a shot I guess, the glaze looks so familiar .

I've ruled out Barker/Searle and the glaze looks familiar because it is used by a few potters that we all know as well as this person. It's no big deal really, as I bought it to go in my "Bargain Bin" that got a little empty at my "Open Weekend" at the end of June.

Hi guys i know this is an old link, but I have just bought two very large charges at auction with this mark cataloged as jane searle who was a very local girl hemingford cambridge, working with stone and china. And they have had a lot of her work come through, and this explains why it turns up a lot in south lincs as she worked for a number of years 80s-90s at cambridge pottery for the scotts.

Thanks eshearm and I would be interested in any reply you get.

I can't remember why I said that I had ruled her out but it was a year ago.

Was out and about in Kent today and came across a woman selling vases and bowls with this glaze combination and the painted mark. Her name was Judith Swannell.

When I saw Judith Swannell at a Crafts Fair in Kent the other month I am sure she had some work with this glaze.

If you need it her email address is

judithswannellceramics@yahoo.co.uk

I'd say it's definitely the same mark as Brin's, so Judith it is.

Maybe I should have taken a picture of Judith's stand at the Crafts Fair I visited but you can't really when you're not going to buy anything.

Probably best to email her but I think the answer will be yes.
