Terracotta bowl with glaze and sponged decoration, by unknown maker

I’m ashamed to admit that I’m not sure who gave me this lovely bowl – I’ve had it for a very long time. As a result I have no clue as to where it came from or who it was made by. It is approximately 12cm in diameter and very finely thrown. Can anyone tell me any information about it? It has a maker’s mark on the bottom which resembles two B’s one on top of the other…

  1. I don’t know for sure, but BB could be Bill Brown, if it is from Scotland. He was one of my lecturers at GSA. It is not like his current work, but he may have done some other styles. Try putting a request on the Scottish Potters Association website, they can often identify things. Good luck with your search, hope you pin point the maker, let us know how you get on.
