Hello, I saw this on my travels and wondered who the maker might be? It's painted nicely, but the piece itself had an indent and lots of bubbles so I think it may be a hobbyist...

Best guess would be Kenneth Clark but he didn't start until 1952 and this looks to be dated 1949. Might be a college piece

Thanks Naomi, the written mark does look right. The idea it might be a college piece might explain the bubbles in the glaze and the bump in the overall piece! Went and picked it up, some clearer photos added.

Might also explain the matting impression on the back. Students are taught to roll out their clay on a hessian matt in the Japanese manner
