Part of an auction lot, a striking bowl with well executed decoration. JW initials to the front but can't see the mark in the book. Any suggestions please?

I believe it’s by Josie Walter

Thanks Naomi but Josie Walter replied that it wasn't hers; Martin Griffiths also replied to say that it wasn't his and Jenny Whitehouse's (Cirenster workshop).

Going back to Josie Walter, it looks like the dish that comes up on Pinterest with the same initials is a misattribution. The bird looks a bit like a kookaburra (though it looks like a kingfisher too) so I wonder if it's an Australian potter? Where do I look for Aussie info?

Anvil Pottery in Wales were doing slipware recently. I think it’s most likely British but someone is decorating and someone else is potting.

This is the other one, also signed JW. Probably British
