Hi All
I purchased this vase on one of my trips to Melbourne, Australia in the late 90s. Unfortunately I lost all the paperwork that came with it and was hoping that one of you might recognise the maker. The letters on the base look like a WB.

I was sorting through books today and came across one that I had forgotten I possessed called Contemporary Ceramic Art in Australia and New Zealand.

The nearest pots that I could find that used the techniques in your vase were made by Malcolm Cooke. Does that name ring any bells?

There are a couple of comprehensive Australian pottery Marks websites online but the only mention of a WB mark was for Bill Burton , but I can only find a photo of him so I don’t know if his work matches this pot
