Very 60s 70s look. Came with a very retro shade too!
Could be student piece but may have An impressed mark, glaze filled.
I’d be surprised if we can ID this but you never know.

Bernard Rooke maybe? Has the vague look of his 60's work before he departed to Suffolk. This abstract signs etc. Or else in auctioneers parlance 'School of Alan Wallwork'.

I would have said Rooke but I dont recall him using a stamp like that, and the design looks hand incised rather than stamped. I suspect it’s Jon Cheney or one of the other potters based in Porthleven

It’s a hand built and worked pot. I shall check hieroglyphic lamps. Thanks

Rooke used moulds of his hieroglyphs to form spriggs, which is why you can find the same patterns applied to different lampbases, and apparently he purloined some of Wallwork’s moulds when they shared the same studio.
The decoration on this lamp looks incised directly into the clay rather than as an applied clay sprigg, which is why I’m doubtful it’s by Rooke. But certainly by one of his contemporaries; c.1960s-70s.

Thank you everyone. I’ve got more to go on now when describing it and I’d never seen the Rooke hieroglyphic pieces before. Nice.
