Like Ed the mark is difficult to make out but could it be CD?

Could it be Judy Gardner, who was there in the early 50s?

Yes, I think that was his early mark when he was in the UK at Leach Pottery, and this is his US mark. He also has a JO underlined in a triangle. But I'll double check

Mark looks full of glaze. Might be why it looks different

His marks are in circles, triangles, rectangles and even a hexagon :) He's been potting for a long time.

Possibly Judy Gardiner but I think it's still a mystery. Worth asking Leach Pottery as I think they are collecting past marks

I think this is Jeff Oestreich, an American who apparently was an apprentice at the Leach pottery, 1969-1971.

I sent the images to the Leach Museum and they said that they can't ID this mark.

This is what a very helpful Joanna said.
