Via her etsy page:
Trained at Croydon College of Art way back in the 70's, set up West Green Pottery on graduating and been potting ever since. My love of nature and the countryside is reflected in the designs on my stoneware pots, which show butterflies,birds, mice, owls,hares, and the green man.

Seems an Oak Leaf mark not a clam this time. Any thoughts, a few pieces floating around the net but potter unknown.

Might it be Wendy Fowler's work from the period 1982 to 1994?

It isn't something that I'm familiar with so can't be sure.

Not Wendy Fowler.
Similar leaf mark to Angela Tain (see photo) but again not quite right.

Nothing like the pottery style either of the similar looking marks I can find online.  It is only a partial mark so I could have misinterpreted. Thank you for looking 😊

Susan Mills West Green Pottery leaf mark (not Angela Tain or Susan Enderby) Empty Another Leaf Mark Plus Impressed VI - Angela Tain

Post by Grumpy Grandad April 20th 2020, 2:54 am

5" Drip glaze pot with 2 impressed marks; a leaf and initials V.I. I initially thought of Angela Tain as the leaf is so similar but the V.I is throwing me.
Any ideas?

Angela Tain’s leaf mark. I’m guessing the VI is a date number, maybe

Could well be a date, but a bit vague if it is. No telling if it's day, month or year. Is it something you've seen before on Tain pieces?

It’s a very plain piece compared to the ones she adds mice and birds, etc, to. Maybe it’s an early piece or a set of vases of different sizes Shrugs

Post by royals1 June 24th 2020, 4:15 pm

I found this sweet little mug but am having a hard time figuring it out. The closest mark I can find is Angela Tain but the mark on my mug seems a little different. Any insight would be much appreciated!  Thanks

The mark could be Penny Simpson, Moretonhampstead, but I’ve not seen her do mouse pots before.

There are a number of similar leaf marks. My candidate would be Wendy Fowler who worked at various potteries in the 80's. The Mouse idea is slightly twee and is probably more likely made for a tourist or quick sale market.

I think it’s by Angela Tain. Somewhere I have a pair of candlesticks with her mice on them


Edited to add, I've merged these posts as they're all by the same potter, but the ID is based solely on the mark in the Marks book and Susan Enderby has a similar mark. Not found one with a label yet so they may be by a different potter entirely.

Finally identified as Susan Mills, West Green Pottery, at Crawley in Sussex. She set up West Green Pottery in 1976.
There is a pot with the same mouse on her instagram page, and a pot with the same leaf mark on her etsy page so that's pretty conclusive
