This is a very competent rice bowl or similar, very skillfully decorated inside with an unglazed outer.
It has an incised 'JK' and then 'JAN KEEP' in pencil, along with '17.50', presumably the price, also in pencil.
For such an accomplished potter/decorator I'm surprised that there seems to be nothing to be found on the internet about Jan Keep, so I wondered if it's a name anybody here has come across?

I don't have any idea where it might be from but it doesn't look British to me.

The name Jan Keep may suggest the Netherlands, especially if it's a man.

There is a Jonathan Keep with an incised JK mark but he's been making 3D printed pots for the past 10 years

If it IS written only in Pencil it might just only be a reservation message. ie KEEP FOR JAN who is calling for it at 17.50

Phil, that was actually similar to my first thoughts - bought in January and one to keep - but the incised JK suggests not Happy
