Decorative pot of no real quality but the mark I've seen before but can't place or remember if I ever found the potter! Looks like a conjoined 'p' & 'd' with dots either side. Any ideas?John Pollex yunomi  Sam_5116

You see a lot less of John Pollex's coloured work than his brown slipware. Maybe because people keep the brightly coloured pieces as more attractive than duller slipware. Not that he wasn't a brilliant slipware potter though. But it a long time since he did it, he gave up traditional slipware in the mid 80's.
I do not think the pink glaze worked for him over well. You do not see much of it around on his work.

Thank you both, that's great. Didn't mean to be rude about his work, but what you can't really tell from the photos is it's a bit miss shaped and dare I say it a bit crude! (sorry John if you happen to read this!). Knew I had seen the mark before and philpot has jogged my memory, I had a slipware teapot by him a number of years ago, so thank you.

He's rolled back on the perfection of the table wares he had to churn out by the ton in his earlier years, when he was making the older style slipware.
