Came across a lidded bowl marked  ‘natural stoneware pottery, handmade by Meikka’ but can’t find any trace of them. Here’s the bowl:-

A short biography -

https://meikkalodun.muchloved.com/Timeline/443427985

Paraphrased:


In 1971, Meikka - still Margot - signed up for a course and went to Hornsey College of Art for 3 years following a Diploma in Art and Design, majoring in Ceramics.
She then set up her own pottery in London and sold her work on the Portobello Market in Notting Hill Gate. In the last years of college and early years of setting up her pottery she met and loved the ceramicist, Mo Jupp, who was a huge influence on her.
Later in the 1980s, Meikka set up a pottery in Amersham and moved to Chesham and she was able to sell her work on the new Covent Garden craft market.
She gave up potting bought a wholefood shop in Wisbech and moved there in 1986.
Deceased 2020

Amazing she met and seems to have had an affair with Mo Jupp.
Could you add a close up of her stamp?

Old Maurice was into what was regarded as "one of the perks of being a lecturer" back in the 1970s in a big way.

Sorry, just come across this - didn’t get a notification that you’d posted, Naomi! I’ve attached the best I can get of the stamp, it’s not very clear.Meikka Lodun, London  78e7c110
