    Hi CW Gang:

    Just bought this for a $ 2.oo here. Looks to be Raku pottery to me with the iridescent to it. It is signed on the bottom and I have been trying everything here. It kinda looks like CARACO but not sure. Also looks like there might be another letter after that or something like CARACOB or something. There is a pottery artist by the name CARACO but their work does not look similar to this at all. Any ideas? Sure, might be just a Studio piece that we will never figure out -- but one can always try....LOL

    Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!

      That would be Karen Coraco and, no, her work doesn't look like your pot at all.

      Hmmmm.... I didn't find anything else, either :-(((

      That is what I thought too.......looks like a letter after the one that we think is last. looks like a *b* or *f* or something....??

      I think I figured this out -- It is CANADIAN -- CARACOL CLAY STUDIO in Alberta, Canada.

      You will note in the last link ( if you let it load ) pottery pieces with blue and some things looking like Snail shell design like the one I posted here

      Some other info found from the above links:

      """"Clay Artist Janet Grabner has been working with clay since graduating with Distinction from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 1989 .Janet and her husband John Dahm moved from Calgary to the town of East Coulee to open a pottery studio. Janet and John both work together to create beautiful Artwork for people to purchase from their Gallery or from one of more than 40 stores that carry their work.......Products
      Handbuilt pottery with natural /fossil imagery. Find us at the Millarville Farmers Market, south of Calgary, each Saturday and the Bearspaw Farmers Market west of Calgary on Sundays.from May-Oct."""""

      So I am pretty sure I have now solved my own mystery !! LOL
