Recently found this large jug marked TB. I suspect it's not British. The way the handle has been finished is reminiscent of French pottery

Perception is a very curious thing. I can also read that as a line with raised dots below it! Doesn't help in the identification of course... Laughter
Take out the crackle gaze, and I would say it probably was French.

Cheers. I think he's a bit too early (19thC) but I'll chase it up Most Excellent

Another one here.

I have this (salt-gazed?) piece of studio pottery and I was wondering if anyone could help me identify the mark. I've been on a few studio pottery mark databases but can't seem to find this one. Many thanks.

I think it’s an ash glaze. The mark looks familiar but I’m not finding it in the British Marks book. It’s possible I’ve seen it on the Australian Marks site
Edited to add, it might be Tim Babbe

edited to add, another example of the mark here

Hello,

We inherited these two pots from an 85 year old English man who passed away recently.  Before he passed away, he told us to take these two pots, as they were special (he said).  He used to live in Guernsey and London before he moved to France.  He said that they were done by a student of a famous potter.  I already spend some time looking at symbols online, but cannot find anything like this one.  The pots are from the UK.  Both pots are made by the same person.  Maybe someone here knows more about these pots?

Thanks!

I’ve come across the mark several times before but not managed to ID it. From the style of the pots I’d say probably French or Belgium

I am sorry to say that the mark is not one used by a well known British studio potter whose work would be of any worth. There is a fairly limited number of British studio potters whose work is of some value, and this mark is definitely not amongst that group

IDed as Tim Babbe

The Coach House Gallery
1970s-80s Rue de Paysans, Guernsey, Channel Islands
Currently- Cobo, Cobo Bay, Guernsey

Bio, via The Coach House Gallery:
"Tim Babbe's pots are all individual and handmade from clay that he mixes himself. Tim blends the raw materials according to his own recipe, before using a lump of clay without weighing it for each pot.
All his stoneware are practical pieces fired at 1300 degrees making it equally suitable from oven to table. He uses natural materials from copper, iron, cobalt to seaweed for colour. Ash glaze is acquired from burning wood, explaining that different woods produce different colours
During the late 70s and early 80s, he worked with Paul Dyer who he says was the best potter in The Channel Islands and a great inspiration to him.
During those years they had a small pottery at the Coach-house Gallery. Tim now works in a shed at his house in Cobo. He stamps his pots TB.
