Signature ? on handblown vase
« on: November 26, 2012, 03:51:50 PM »
I'm having trouble making out the signature on this vase. Can anyone help please.  It might be identifiable by the style of vase, so I've included an image also.  It has a partially polished/snapped off pontil mark.  The first letter might be G - may be Gavin??  The second name might begin with L or W.
Any help would be appreciated :)

The William Walker who won the competition Michael Harris instigated at the RCA and who subsequently worked on producing Azurene with MH at IoWSG.

Many thanks John :-*
It is indeed William Walker. His work is well documented on the web and I found a bowl of his with the same random colour pattern on Millers online price guide website.  These vases too Sue (scroll down to no.40) http://www.georgekidner.co.uk/index.php?contentId=28302&showAll&categoryId=3045
I would never have made out his name without your help :)
