The pots look like they came from a traditional Japanese or Chinese mold but the signature doesn't.

Someone said there was a western woman working in Tokoname at one time, could they be her work.

I don't remember a name.

I don't know the kilns name, but it's not a signature, it's a stamp, and it's in Japanese, but not Kanji. I believe these to be export production pots. I have a boatload of pits with this stamp, most showing various signs of being press molded, but some that are clearly slip cast. They're very inexpensive and plentiful here in the west. I've never seen them for sale online in Japan.

That is the stamp of Lotus International, LI from Georgia. I think they are Chinese pots not Japanese. The ones I have seen are ligher colored clay and seem some what light for their size. Lotus has or had a Chinese connect with the Artist Qingquan " Brook" Zhao.

Thanks for the reply Mark! I knew these were production pots, and never bothered to look any deeper. I thought the stamp was the haragana meaning "out" when used alone, but it's definitely an "L I"
Good stuff! Thanks again!

Is that the same company that imported the beetle-infected crape myrtle?
