Hi

A sample of 8 small plant pots I was excited to find today.

Lotus Pottery, Stoke Gabriel local to me.

Some are stamped with the LP mark, some are a little wonky. And not all with drainage holes.

I love them and all are new to me.

Some have painted numbers, some marker pen and some impressed numbers. Would these be test firing batch numbers is my question as they don't seem to exist as majorly produced ranges in related searching. Sure prone to be broken from use but there should be others around.

Thanks

Could be lots of things.Often marks on studio pottery are glaze codes. Probably not in this case tho. Probably entirely arbitrary personal or technical reasons that were entirely to help the potter. That is it with studio pottery of course, it is entirely pwrsonal. That being a lot of its charm.

Thanks Phil. It was my leaning that they were to help the potter/s myself.

I have to admit I think I will keep some and especially the wonky ones, it's so personal of the process of a pottery.

I think glaze or batch test is most likely
