Well if it had a five sided box around it you could almost say it was a Mirek Smisek. Without that box, it is someone else. I have a very similar mark in my mystery section

Mystery mark 1.070

Was that that gorgeous teapot with cane handle on T/Me. I thought that mark may have been Jan Cockell, but now I see the mark closer, hmmm, nothing like it really. I don't know what work Jan Cockell does but that looks like a nice shino, fired high. Now, it wouldn't have been Roger Smisek's mark would it. I think there was a photo of a saltglazed bottle on that cool NZ Pooersmarks website wasn't there Tim - I seem to recall it was more flower like in the flesh than the 'drawing' that is in the Marks of NZ Potters books. He was/is a good potter apparently.

sorry, my 't' key doesn't seem to be working very well, and the 'o' is overcompensating!
