Hi, can anyone tell who the potter is - it is a well made porcelain vessel with a very very slight pink tinge - the only mark is a shell mark with a loop at the top...

There is the outside possibility that it could be a french hand - it came with a few Joanna Howells pieces but not the same kind of shell engraving.

Mike Goddard and May Ling Beadsmoore both have impressed shell marks. Japanese is also a possibility

Gilda Westermann - shell mark Empty White Porcelain - impressed shell seal mark - Gilda Westermann, Devon

Post by studio-pots May 11th 2022, 11:24 am

I had a day out yesterday and despite making a decision long ago not to buy things such as this, I bought it. The mainly reason was to support the only antiques shop left in town but also because it was a very good lidded pot and the impressed seal rang a bell from 20 or 30 years ago.

The bell did not ring loud enough to remember the maker, hence it landing here.

It's white glazed porcelain; around 9 inches tall and it has the impressed mark on the base (as shown) plus inside the lid too.

She appears to have given up ceramics around 2008 and is now a "life coach".

Wish I could be a life coach instead of all the crap I have to do. What's a life coach anyway?

It's something that pays better than making pots. You help people attain their goals in life and so there is absolutely no reason why you might not change direction and be one.

It is probably frustrating when a less talented potter, working in porcelain in a similar manner, gets all of the praise. Even though you know that's solely because they are able to pay for PR and are well connected.
