This little stoneware vase with perfectly controlled glazes is very well modelled and has a crisp impression of the potter's seal.

To some extent, it is probably influenced by Japanese ceramics and David Leach style and technique which is not enough, I am afraid, to decipher the potter's signature.

I would be very grateful for any help with identifying the potter's seal.Tenmoku Bud Vase.-   Hookshouse pottery Tenmok14

Thanks. The photographs were taken in daylight against white canvas near a window.

Is it an h with a dot ?
There's a pottery called Hookshouse that has that as a mark.

A big thankyou to all of you. It is amazing how quickly you have identified the potter's mark and how well your database is organised not to mentioned your impressive knowledge of the potters and their work. Thank you ever so much.
