Mark Nuttall - think the plate could be eric stockl I have a vase with a mark which looks very like this
Ruth Stockl - hello this looks very much like one of my grampa's pots, definitely seen that glaze before and that is his mark (although it's pretty generic!)
Trevor - Thanks for your thoughts. However I can't find any reference to this mark being one of Eric Stockl's in British Studio Potters. If this is by him then is it from the period 1977-2001 when he worked in Addingham, W. Yorkshire. The reason I ask is that it was in a box of pottery bought at auction along with a William Plumtre bowl (from the period 1987 onwards when he worked first at Hartsop, Patterdale, Cumbria and then at Witherslack, Cumbria) and which contained another pot of interest which looks to have the mark of Sam Hall who worked in Haworth, W. Yorkshire (1991-95), before moving to St Ives Cornwall. I tried contacting him by email with aphoto or two, via the Gaolyard Studios but they/he didnt reply. The possible Sam Hall pot is nothing like his later work more of a simple flared vase or beaker. The faceted pot listed above is another pot from the same lot and there seems to be a nothern/Cumbrian/W Yorkshire theme
mark nuttall - possible is Eric Stockl as I got my pot in a charity shop in Ilkley which is very close too addingham

stewart cameron - Yes, Trevor. I can confirm Eric Stockl's grand daughter's affirmation re the mark on your plate.I have a number of the admirable Mr Stockl's pots, which I purchased from his pottery in the old Mill House in Ilkley in the 1980,s.He introduced the mark on your plate in around 1989/90,as I recall,prior to which he applied an impressed ES mark within a small cartouche.I have yet to see his name in any pottery reference book, but would wager that it can only be a matter of time before he is given the recognition his accomplished stoneware deserves.He used to hold an annual exhibition sale in Holland and was widely appreciated there,and , indeed ,on one occasion sold me one of his exhibition pieces before it made it to Holland, insisting that he would make another one! Mrs Stockl,half Russian, half Indian made the most wonderful ecclesiastical tapestries too! A very gifted and lovely couple!
