    The "Benard " pot..

    May.. be a 1980's piece from Benard Pottery in Vermont.. The style certainly fits.

    It is a Wax risist -Barium Matt glaze/ with a Gerstley borate underlament ( first coat) ( cone 10. most likely)

    The orange is a Rutile fluxed engobe or stain( hard to tell without seeing it in my hands),( no that's not right... I just went and look in another window at your piece)
    It is the clay body that make up the lines, so that leads me to think , that the clay body is very high in iron, with a clear glaze, which then lends itself to A benard pottery standard, 2250 F .
    none the less, the piece caught my eye, as yours, and well..... I thought I might add a little interest to your day about that clay piece...

    any more information? like a stamp? or a symbol?.
    all good..

    good to know that you sense a simple piece and take it for what it is.. ART.Funtional. and most importantly.. Your's
    All craftsmen wish, expression of self and to another, which that leaves a place for, use, decoration, conversation and maybe a "story"?
