Interesting medium size blue studio art vase made by R Pooley in Devon and made of stoneware don't know what date to put this at. The downside to this vase the top rim outer edge is cracked. Lovely item though. Only cost £1.00 and well worth it.

yeah I saw that one but we prefer that members don't link to live auctions as it opens upthe floodgates to promoting sales

Nice piece, Nice photos too!
When one cannot find hardly any reference at all on the web about a potter, it strongly suggests they were doing it in a small way. Usually if a potter is selling in commercial channels the name comes up somewhere.
Its a bit like painters. Huge numbers of people paint, yet relatively speaking, there are a miniscule number of professional painters. A lot of amateur painters show in with Local Groups at Church or village halls, so only sell very locally. Same may well be true here.

do you think the bare clay body was intentional or accidental glaze slippage?

It happens when you play around with glazes.
