      It's a piece of contemporary American-style raku, (post-firing reduction.) It was glazed with a matte glaze before it was fired.

      The green spot is not a stone, it's either a speck of green glaze that got on the pot before it was fired, or an impurity in the clay body which came out in the firing.

      The way it's signed indicates it's probably a student piece, or done by someone in one of the thousands of raku workshops given around the world since the late 1960s, so it's probably going to be next to impossible to identify who made it.
