Itsuko Shida

This large unomi or teabowl has a sticker on the base as shown and a faint impressed mark (at 10 o'clock) on the image. I think the impressed mark is the same as the sticker but difficult to see with the naked eye even. It appears to be salt glazed. Any ideas please?

It might well have come from the Harlequin Gallery back in the 1990s. It's by a female Japanese potter called Itsuko Shida, who came over here to do a degree originally at Camberwell and then at Harrow. She changed courses because there was very little practical ceramics on the course at Camberwell even back then.

The impressed mark will be as the label.

After finishing her degree she stayed here and married a fellow potter but had to give up throwing because of some problem she developed in her arm.

I'll see if I can dig out an image of some completely different later work.

Thanks for the information. The two pieces are very different!
