Looks like the Lowerdown Pottery mark, not sure about the other.

We could do with a better picture of just the marks to be honest.

The second mark does look like the Lowerdown Cross mark - in real life does it appear to be an L with a + sitting in it?

I can't see the other mark but might it be JL for Jeremy?

Agreed.

Could the 1st one be RB for Richard Brooks? Or Brooks' other mark of a cross and 4 dots? - assuming he ever used that mark at Lowerdown.

The first one looks like 4 dots in a circle.. The second looks like the L and a cross...

Until you mentioned the name it was someone that I had never heard of but not only did he train with David for 3 years but also appears to have visited in 2001 and it seems made some pots.

I did manage to find a fluted bowl by him on the net with the Lowerdown Cross mark but it had his RB personal seal. The four dot mark around the cross seems to be the mark for his pottery in Australia so it seems unlikely that he would have used that when visiting David in 2001. Maybe though!

Thanks Naiomi thats what i had seen as well, the circular mark could be initials but unreadable i was hoping it was David Leach very Hamada in style the way it was wax resisted... I was delighted to get it and is my favourite pot at the moment... Richard Brooks had a heavy cross on it and a dot in each corner...

Forgetting the mark (I can't make it out), the pot itself reminds me of Jeremy Leach's work.

That is the most likely as he has been working there since his father's death until sometime last year.

We do have a thread in this section for pots produced at the Lowerdown Pottery, which was set up by David Leach in 1956, but no thread for his individual work produced there or elsewhere by him so here goes.

A squat stoneware vase, 4.4 inches/11.2cm tall: -

The next geometric patterned stoneware vase was made at Loughborough during the time that he was a part time lecturer there during the early 1960s.

Interesting that you leave the exhibition label on philpot. I used to take them off contemporary work I bought but don't anymore as I realise they are part of the history of the pot

Not only did Bill Ismay do that he also took photographs of where the pieces he bought were placed in an exhibition. He got an MBE for his efforts.

Actually I bought that one at the Rev Norman Smith studio pottery sale at Chichester last year. I have kept the label on purely in the desperately vague hope that I might trace what exhibition it came from.
