Apologies, forgot to mention that the quality of this group is fantastic. Very tactile, homogeneous pieces all with great forms. I'm fascinated by them hence my earlier enquiry to The Forum requesting any thoughts or insights your expertise may suggest!

Thanks again!

It would be helpful if the photographs were lit. They appear to be hand built and burnished. Are they light in weight, which I would expect, if they were burnished?

Dear Studio Pots

Thanks for getting back to me, attached are some further photos which I hope are a little more helpful. Apologies for the previous set.
Weight wise they are not astronomical. The largest pot has some weight which is predictable I guess!

Thanks again for your comments and help!

Kindest

Yes they are what I thought and it explains why the mark is scratched into the surface.

Having got this far, I have to admit that it is not a type of studio pottery that I know a great deal about. Therefore have no idea about the mark.

Dear forum,

Don't know if this helps but had a suggestion that these vessels may have been pit-fired?

Thanks as always
