Pottery strike's working (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

minton

Here is my best explanation:

'pottery' is the definition.

(Minton was a famous pottery manufacturer)

'strike's working' is the subsidiary indication.

'strike' becomes 'mint' ('mint' can be a synonym of 'strike').

'working' becomes 'on'.

'mint'+'on'='minton'

This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Other definitions for minton that I've seen before include "Pottery firm", "Stoke china", "ceramicist" and "English pottery company".)
