This dinky jug is about 10cm tall and is quite flat - about 2cm wide.

The base has a sticker which gives her address in St Albans, Herts. I've just peeled it back and there is an impressed mark  - PA.

I'm trying to find info' on her but have drawn a blank so far.

It looks to be wood-fired to me.

It is always good to see the marks/labels too if you can. Is it light in weight for the size?

No, it's weighty. I can't figure out how it was made.

I'll take more snaps when the sun comes up on Monday - it's now dark here is SE Asia.

Excellent

She was in St. Albans from 1981 until 1990. During that time she used various techniques but it included raku fired porcelain.

It looks like raku, hence my question about weight - raku is usually done using earthenware and is light in weight.

So likely to be raku fired porcelain.

I've just got this email from Pauline:

No bother Graham, happy to help
.
I had a spell of making little bottles in my home built gas kiln around 1984 or so. They were fired inside a small sagger containing sawdust and fired to about 1280 degrees c. Some were made of 1044 stoneware clay from Clayglaze  Pottery suppliers, some of porcelain. Hope that is useful inf.
