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.

Beautiful lustrous glaze on this Lowerdown Jug added to my collection last year off ebay. 14.5 cm (height)




Less excited about this vase by Jeremy Leach at Lowerdown that I got in an auction lot recently. Horrible white clay with firing cracks and so-so glaze - no wonder no-one wanted it! 11.6cm (height)

Jeremy can do some good stuff at times but I just wanted to share his sales pitch to me several years ago - it was "Buying my work means you get the Leach name at a fraction of the price".

I wanted to add that the couple of times over the years I've chatted with Jeremy he was really good, helpful, informative & patient. He was more than happy to help talk with no pressure at all. On a third occasion when I was there, talking with a helper, he was grumpy & dismissive. Everyone has off-days.  Happy

My understanding has been that a simple Lowerdown Cross stamp indicates that it may have been potted by David or Jeremy but equally it may have been by anyone else there.

Am I wrong in that?

the Lowerdown cross mark was used by David Leach and the foxglove decor I believe is his as well , but I suppose others could have made them too robert tinnyunt for one .

David sold me this one also. he was a gentleman. He took his time to point out where he had left a thumb-print in the glaze. To be honest, for me, that added to the interest.
