Hi there, the jug certainly looks like Len's work and mark. Here is a similar one that is on the site ... https://www.newzealandpottery.net/t7712-len-castle-mug-and-jug-courtesy-of-the-ferret

The crackle bowl I'm not at all sure about, as it has no identifying marks and is not the usual shape. Also I don't recall that he ever used glass on his work. Many potters made crackle bowls
