Stoneware plate with a copper lustre decoration.
I'm as interested in the design as finding the maker. If anyone can shed light on either I'll be grateful.
Dated 1976 - 1986, three names which are Edna, Wands & Roxburgh,  along with the word Trio and three doves to the centre.
I'm not usually a fan of copper lustre, but I love the doves and the inscription interested me.

With regards the potter, I've been through the bible, big mistake, it doesn't appear to be there.
The impressed marked looks like a J, with a dash coming off it and a dot below.

Any help appreciated. Copper Lustre plate with JF mark - Joan Faithfull  20230414

This is by my mum - Joan Faithfull (was Crawford before marriage).... She did quite a few named plate commissions (and gifts) for births, weddings, or just general family celebrations.Sometimes mugs too.

She really only used lustre late in her career: around 1980 and 1990s, before she lost her eyesight and had to give up pottery.

More on her here: https://blog.nms.ac.uk/2022/02/11/joan-faithfulls-mull-pottery/
