Tall brown/ green art pottery vase with heavy glaze

Post by Jesuisjodie on March 27th 2017, 11:13 pm

Hello, Id really appreciate some help in identifying this beautiful yet bizarre looking vase.

It is 29cm tall. Its as if it is made of 3 sections. A tall base, with a wide, flat middle rim (approx 14cm across) and then a narrow top funnel (6 cm diameter).
It is an olive green colour with patches of red/brown. It has a thick, shiny glaze.
On the base are the letters ME and then underneath (what appears to be) VVEJ or WEJ ?
I feel as if it is 1970s, but cannot obviously be sure of this. Any help much appreciated!! :-)

P.S. Apologies if these appear sideways, I tried several times to upload the right way! Thanks again

It's not a mark or a shape I've come across before, but there are various attributes that point to it being a student piece - the slab building. The puddling and streaky glaze. The glazed base - bases are usually wiped so they don't stick or drip on the kiln shelf. Plus the inscribed initials, rather than a stamp. And the second set of letters might be WED for Wednesday.

Hi Naomi, thanks so much for your reply I really appreciate it. I love the vase, i suppose its a shame it wasnt made in a famous studio but it looks nice on my shelf :-) I have one more vase I need to try and identify, initialed not marked so could be the same story. Thanks again! Jodie
