Got a few pieces of raku base marked D H C i think. Bought them years ago but have no record off who. Think it was a Scottish potter.
Anyone recognise this work.

DN or DNC or DNO maybe. Is the mark incised? Can you post some more photos of the marks

Hi Naomi
I spent days trying to track DH and dhc , got led astray with DH too many times but dead end with dhc. Pretty sure it was a scottish potter and i bought about 6 pieces directly off him but lost all the paperwork..about 15 to 20 years ago
Good luck with your search any help much appreciated

This is DHC - David Holmes Ceramics, who worked out of the Elwick Mill, Orkney.

I bought a couple of pieces from him via eBay about 10 years ago and just went through my feedback to find the details. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2015.
