M L Studio Potter's Mark

(M L Studio Potter's Mark)
I'm very keen to identify this unusual mark. It looks like an 'M' with an 'L' laid over it on the left hand side and then a line around the outside of it. It is heavy pot with some crazing but otherwise perfect condition.
Grateful of any clues.

I need help on this one because studio Pottery is not my bag. Also I didn't get whether you were US or UK based (such is the 'global' nature of the internet.
If you are from the US there are two notable studio potters that I could find with M L in their names.
M.L. Owens of North State Pottery in Sanford
M.L. "Sonny" Moss of the Mud Creek Pottery, Calvert, Texas
I couldn't find any pictures of their marks though.
Hope this helps your research.
p.s. The following page is a 'must see' if you are researching fine china - for value and identification:-
