Hello.

I have a bowl by the Studio Potter Alan Caiger-Smith.

His makers marks are slightly complicated on this bowl.
His signature is clear and I think the year mark is 1995.
Could anyone please help with the other marks?

I am not sure if you will be able to see the photo I have tried to attach.
If not this is a waisted post, sorry.

Thank you for reading this.

It could be 1974 or 1995, I think the earlier mark matches the circular Made in England stamp

The other marks apart- from the year marks, signature and pottery marks (which they tended to use on earlier pieces)- are glaze codes for lustre glazes used. They were virtually re-inventing a lot of the lustre glazes used, and were experimenting with many different lustre glazes which they needed a clear record for. Lustre glazing being a very haphazard and difficult process.
It would be nice to see if it is a lustre piece!
