Hello,

Is anyone able to help identify this plate. It caught my eye, i have never seen anything like it before and looks almost Miro-inspired! I think the markings on the back are a signature but I am even not sure about that! If anyone is able to make any suggestions I would be very grateful.

Many thanks

It does look like Yerja Which was the name used by Chris Speyer and his wife in highly decorated ceramics from the 80's and 90's, from Devon.Nothing like this work now tho.

Thanks for all your help with this one. I contacted Chris Speyer and he has confirmed that it is his work. Yerja was absolutely right, I would never have deciphered it!! Thanks again.
