    Does anyone recognize this potter's signature?? It is 7" tall and 21" in circumference. Design? Age? Type of pot?
    Thanks!

      No, not Native American. It's contemporary stoneware, thrown on a potter's wheel, glazed, and fired in a kiln (none of which are techniques used by Native American potters.)

      It has the look of studio pottery, but the way it is trimmed on the bottom, and the incised signature, make it more likely to be a student project.

      Either way, it is probably going to be virtually impossible to identify the potter, unless more information is known. There are literally hundreds of thousands of pieces made by students, hobby artists, or unknown studio potters that will never be identified.

      Based on the clay, and the form itself, it's likely 1970s or newer. The narrow opening and size would indicate it would fit into the category of "weed pot," designed to hold dried flowers, popular during that time period.
