A rather nice studio jar with tenmoku glaze. Anyone recognise the seal mark ‘da’? Thanks Hand thrown Tenmoku Jar, da mark Caa64710

When I saw the top of your tenmoku jar the first name that came to mind was Ursula Mommens and the stoneware body looks to be the same mix as Ursula used too.

Of course, the mark is the "problem". The font of the mark looks similar to that of Diana Peyton. Diana was a friend of Ursula's but her mark was dP, which seems to rule her out.

However, I think that there must be a connection with Ursula but can't make any further suggestions at the moment.

Looks like da to me. Not a mark I've come across before. It's not in the Marks book. Possibly European

I have been searching through every conceivable combination and now officially spent! Unlikely to be three letters and there’s definitely a down stroke on the right hand side of the second letter… therefore still think ‘da’ the best fit. I think we’ve established that it’s not Asian and more than likely European. Is there a comprehensive directory of studio potters by name? If anyone still interested? Thanks

Pretty sure it’s not British. There are Australian and New Zealand potters marks websites. 
And The Marks Project for US marks but most sign their work rather than use a stamp. 
There is a French marks site but the rest of Europe is pretty scrappy

Thanks Naomi, I’ll take a look. Still curious about who might have made it, as it is well made.
