That is a nice piece dome by a very good potter. Cut-sided work is very difficult to do.and only gets done well by the best. This one is done very well. I don't think those indentations on the bottom are a maker's mark too vague.

“Indentations”? The incised cross is deliberate and likely to be their mark. It’s the type of mark you’d see on Japanese pieces but this doesn't look Japanese. I suspect it’s a French studio potter, or at least European

Well they look like a couple of scratches to me! Laughter Mefinks it comes from frustration over the years by not being able to recognise who made a piece. What is the point of making individual studio pottery if itd mark is so basic it could be anybody or anything? This is a nice piece. If it had a distinctly recognisable mark it would have a reasonable value. But without that Shrugs .

Certainly looks like Bill Campbell’s style. Not his usual mark but maybe it was a test piece. I think he’s the closest match

The blue chun glaze is something that many potters experiment with during their careers. It is difficult to perfect but personally I find the glaze here much better than anything on Mr. Campbell's website.
