Signature ? on handblown vase


Anne E.B.:
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 :)

Similar has been on before, second name could be Walker.

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

Anne E.B.:
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)
I would never have made out his name without your help :)
