Dear Forum

An unusual vase. Well made with three vertical creases to the body equidistant to each other.

Appears to be Tenmoku glaze. Approx 5” high Indistinct mark to base to these eyes!

Any help or thoughts gratefully received!Unusual creased Tenmoku vase trying to ID B4d84410

Further info gleaned today suggests this may well be a British pot!…

It could well be made in the UK. It has been thrown and then altered but the glaze, which isn't tenmoku, is unusual.

I can't recall seeing the impressed seal before.

I don’t recognise the mark. It might be a hobby potter, or a US or Australian/NZ potter, because the base hasn’t been finished to the standard of a Leach or Winchcombe trained potter

Dear Naomi and Studio-Pots

Thanks as always for your time and expertise.

Can now appreciate that this is an unusual glaze after comparing and contrasting. Was hoping the glaze and shape might be pointers to a maker as the mark is so unclear!

Search continues I guess!

There probably is, but you’d need to ask a potter. I don’t recall collectors giving it a specific name

Thanks Naomi. Having mistakenly IDed the glaze as a Tenmoku didn’t want to inadvertently mislead on the glaze any further. More I inspect it the more unusual it appears to be!

Just came across this 60s BL vase whose form and glaze reminded me of my pot. Not suggesting my pot if by BL but thought it was interesting!

The glaze on the vase at Bonham's is tenmoku as it states and it might remind you of your vase but I am certain if you could see them side by side you would see that they are not alike at all.

If it helps, a photograph of a number of pots by Ursula Mommens all with the same tenmoku glaze as a result of different firings and firing temperatures.

Hi Studio-Pots

Thanks as always for all your comments and insights.

Totally accept all of your points. As mentioned I wasn’t suggesting any potential attribution for my pot. I’m guessing that with an unknown mark we therefore have a pot probably thrown in the 60s / 70s, as Naomi said, but potentially by a potter who is currently undocumented.

Thanks again for all your time. Great to have all you guys expertise around!
