Dear Forum,

Firstly apologies for the quality of my pictures attached. They are posted for initial reference only. Better photos will be posted over the weekend.

I'm trying to ID this well formed and finished wide-mouth vessel.

The pot appears to be stoneware and has some weight. It stands approximately 5" in height,

The base glaze to the inside and outside appears to be a very dark brown tenmoku type glaze and is accented with an iridescent blue-green drip running intermittently from the shoulder of the vessel to approx halfway down the vessel.

Unglazed base is grey in colour. There appears to be an incised mark, possibly the letter(s) "A", "K'" or even "JK" in a box along with a numeral which initially looks like either "600" or "009" to my eye!

Appreciate your time any info as always!

Thanks in advance!

Nice piece. But usually pieces with a scratched signature like that are student pieces which are very difficult to put a name to.

Hi Philpot

Thanks for your kind comments. It’s a nice pot but appreciate your point regarding the marks on the base. Agree that these types of pots are often impossible to attribute which is doubly frustrating when they are good like this one!

Thanks again!

Nice looking piece . The number might be a running total of the number of pots they’ve made which would mean they are a pretty competent potter.

Thanks Naomi. As you suggest the maker of this pot appears to be talented….

Well they could still be a hobby potter. Just means they don't have to make a living out of it so they can concentrate on what they like making rather than spending time on the bread n' butter pots

Makers could in fact possibly be an incised “A” within a square with the bar of the “A” extending outside the “A” and reaching the square…
