This is a wonderful cylinder pot with incised decoration. I am really stumped by it. I had thought it was by Bob Dawe until I checked in my reference book. Can anyone help identify the potter please, kind regards

It's one of Bob Dawe's 'Red Barn' Pottery marks.

Generally speaking these sorta 60's Runic type studio items are very often covered by the names of Alan Wallwork, Bernard Rooke, Louis Hudson and Bob Dawe.

Here's a Red Barn vase that stands about 20cm tall. I guess it's an early piece.

...and here it is standing beside a similar Alan Wallwork vase...

Thanks to Naomi's lovely website I realise that the pot that has sat on kitchen worktop for years containing pens/pencils etc. is a Bob Dawes pot - similar to the one at the bottom of page 1 - 4.5" high, green glaze at top, 3 different circular patterns incised in clay below, rolled slab construction, correct mark. Is it ok to keep using it as a pen holder or should it be given more respect and prized as an object of great worth.

I’d carry on using it as a pen holder. There are keen collectors of his work but it’s not rare Most Excellent

Just came across this piece on the late Bob Dawe. Interesting to note he diversified into making dishes in the 90s. I don't recall ever seeing one.

Very interesting.

A quote from the blog

This is Bob Dawe replying to your interesting question about our style of pottery in the 60’s. It was probably because several of us went to Goldsmiths College, where building pottery was far more of an interest to us than throwing. Secondly, under the influence of two splendid tutors: David Garbett and Gordon Baldwin. There was a very strong emphasis on textual decoration that related to the pot and enhanced its form.

I find his pottery far more appealing than Rooke or Hudson

Here's an unmarked vae, but it certainly looks like an early piece of Bob's...

Three of Bob's vases with the usual, albeit different, Red Barn marks. The tallest being about 6"...

Is there actually a 'Goldsmith's' school of pottery?

I wonder if the middle stamp was Howard Evans’ who set up Red Barn Pottery with Dawe. The vase does look more his style

Compare it to the similar piece with blue glaze higher up the page, which does have Bob's mark.

I see B D in that particular stamp, but maybe that was unintentional.

Here are seven different Red Barn marks on the vases I have, plus the one posted by Philpot... there are likely more:
