Fat lava style vase marked TM - Melitta Teubner, N. Germany

Fat lave-style cone-shaped vase.
The seller said she hadn't been able to id it and reckoned she was pretty good at id-ing stuff, so the challenge is on (unless it's a student piece, in which case I give up).
Inscribed TM or MT on the base. The other marks  seem to be a product of the glaze across the bottom cracking and peeling off in places.

It does have all the markings of being the work of a hobby potter.

Seems it may be by Melitta Teubner, a potter from northern Germany who marks her pots like this, and uses a red clay and lava glazes.
