The characters are įžŽčŠ. Possibly read as mishiba or bishiba (probably bishiba), sorry I can not give you any more specific information about the potter.

Hey Jason,

It is made by Bigei. Very typical pot of his.

thanks Kakejiku and Josef,
Josef It was my understanding that there were different potters making pots from the Bigei kiln?
Maybe you could enlighten me?
Thanks again, Jason

It is possible he has an assistant or employee, but even if he did I don't think they would use this signature. I think you can rest assured this pot was made by Bigei himself. Nice pot for a little shimpaku.
