I’m a beginner when it comes to pottery and marks, so I would appreciate any help in identifying these lovely pieces.  

The plate is 9 1/2 inches in diameter and 2 lbs.  The largest bowl has 7 inches diameter, and the smallest ( a tea ceremony bowl?) has 5 3/4 diameter.   I think it would be considered salt-glazed?  

Thanks for looking!

My first thought is Japanese, although there are some Japanese-American studio potters.

I suspect Naomi's suggestion of it being an American based potter is most likely.

It isn't salt-glazed, which is usually described as an orange peel like texture.

Looks like they’ve used a Buncheong type slip for the flowers
