Lovely little pot with simple brushstrokes. Would obviously love to mention a certain Japanese potter but would rather hear other peoples opinions. Did come from good stock (not that that means anything as people buy what they like) where some pieces by well known and well thought of potters were being kept within the family.....Interesting Small Oriental? style pot.

It's from the UK and looks to be from the 1970s when hundreds of would be potters were exploring Japanese ceramic brushwork.

Agreed, 60s-70s pot. Lots of potters using the same clay and glaze, from Cornwall to Cumbria to North Wales and Scotland

Boo! Spoilsports! but in reflection you are telling me exactly what my head was telling me which my heart was trying to over rule! And probably thrown by the lovely pieces of Bernard Leach and Cardew pieces the family were keeping, which I can't blame them one little bit.

Nah not spoilsports!  A 70's generic pot is just so recognisable. There were a very large number of people doing pottery courses, and they all tended to be taught in that rather rigid Leach/ Cardew/ anglo oriental style. Trouble is they mostly ended up producing work that looked and felt almost identical to everything else. It is probably no accident that the best potters of that generation came to studio  pottery slightly later in life. Mike Dodd started studying medicine at Cambridge, Phil Rogers teaching, Jim Malone teaching.
