Not quite seeing it and she seems to paint her initials. But it may not be Mick or Hill! Thanks

MGH and Mary Gibson Horrocks was the first thing that occurred to me as well. She is mainly associated with Buckfast Abbey Pottery. But she worked all over the place, including Bulmer's Brick Yard Sudbury 1942-44, Leach St Ives 1944-47, Michael Cardew Wenford Bridge 1949....So she would have worked in many different styles.

Oh maybe you’re right! They do look similar. Does it look like the kind of pot she made?

Difficult to say; she had a long and varied potting career, but it does seem to be the right palette. Maybe not while at Buckfast, though.

edited to add, Mirka Golden-Hann has the same initials and has made pots in a various styles

Well done - I’ll keep looking out for other examples of her work but it seems like it could well be her. Thank you Naomi and Philpot!
