bottle vase, spiral mark - Gordon Menzies, Iona Pottery

Anyone recognise the spiral, or snake, mark on this bottle?
I suspect it's a made-in-Korea Sake bottle, but hoping it's an interesting bit of studio pottery.

Could be Julian King-Salter 1983-1987 was a spiral impressed mark like this for his pieces out of Pembrokeshire. Stoneware with experimental glazes

It has the hallmarks of being made in the UK but it isn't by Julian K-S, whose work was hand built vessels in bright colours.

Another one has turned up on ebay, attributed to Gordon Menzies, Iona Pottery. Haven't been able to confirm that. I have an Iona Pottery bowl which is stamped Iona Pottery, but maybe he used more than one mark?

There is a mark in BSPM for Gordon Menzies that looks like this mark from the time that he was potting in Edinburgh (1974 to 1976) i.e. pre Iona Pottery.

I am not familiar with his work so can't say whether it is by him or not.
