Since no one else has replied, I'll offer my dubious idea.
Rebecca Harvey did this type of Soda glazing in Cambridge for a few years, before going on to the RCA and St Ives. I have seen a couple of pieces in charity shops, and they look like this. But the signature does not look much like her one in the Marks book! Shrugs

thanks Phil but Rebecca used a light grey clay and her mark was impressed into the side of her pots whereas this is a base mark

I tend to visit my local antiques shops every 2 or 3 months and will pick up a pot that pays for lunch and diesel. Yesterday it was a bag of chips and a 36-mile round trip

You know better than I, Dan, but might it be an early piece of Ruthanne's work?
