I say the above because, although there might have been a dash of salting in the kiln, it looks as if it is wood-fired.

Wondering if the mark is a stylised D W but haven't found a likely candidate.

That explains why I didn't get it, as I've never heard of him.

I see that he lives in Alfreton on DD's patch.

I'd never heard of him either , I'm told he may have been at Winchcombe for a little while , Doug Fitch had some of his pots and were spotted by a visitor to his studio .

The Pottery has a page of Facebook and it seems to be one of the many tourist attractions that Alfreton has to offer!

You can go there and have a taster session of throwing and decorating plus he also runs classes (not tonight though as he is sick). I saw some glazed pieces on the site that have the "window" decoration as on the vase above.

Ha Ha, was there yesterday doing the charity shops, got some good bits, but a bit of a
grim mining town really.
No I've never heard of him either, sorry.
