Signature - David Wall ?

This signature looks to me like it could be David Wall (of Tamar Glass).  What does anyone else think please?  Is the bowl typical of his work?

TIA  ;)

Well it looks as though it says David Wall to me, Anne. I can't confirm or deny as to whether it is typical of his work, as I am not familiar with it.
David E. does have a piece of his work on his website, but he doesn't show the signature. Hopefully, he can help  ;) ;D
If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

The David Wall piece:

If I can find it, I'll try and photo the signature, but it is very faint.

The photo is very vague and the sig comes out rather indistinct and faint - I've sent it onto Anne anyway. But there are similarities to the signature on the base of my vase to Anne's. David Wall be contacted, it appears:

David Wall. Design-led, hand-blown, mostly functional glassware, from jugs & vases to scent-bottles, with strong forms & vivid use of colour, sometimes frosted. Also one-off sculptural pieces & lighting

Thanks Della 8).  Always good to have a second opinion.

Thanks too David for the image ;D.  I've compared them both and they are the same.  Its quite a delicate piece, so may be its an early effort.  I'll see what else I can find out but don't hold your breath about any book :o ;D  I don't know enough words to write a book ;D


I'll get me WHITE coat  :chky: the one with the handy strap's.

You can borrow mine Sue.  I've got a new one now with longer straps ;D

With 870+ posts, you have already written a book - I reckon if you just collect all your posts and images you would have the makings of an interesting book "The taste of Anne"  ;)
