I have never heard of Owen Cobb, but he must have been rather accomplished, as Mr Google tells me he has written several pottery books, and was a life member of the Auckland Studio Potters, until he passed at the end of 2009.

We lived next door to Owen Cobb and his family in Epsom in the late 1970s. I remember watching him throw pots and dunk them in big buckets of glaze, in his large garage/studio. He let us kids make pinch pots (which my mother still has) and my family used a good number of his pieces daily during the 1980s, I don’t think anything survived our daily family use. He made great functional pottery, from what I recall your piece is in a typical glaze, we also had some in a dark brown (tenmoku?).
