Need help interpreting writing on bottom Celadon Bowl

Had you posted a sharp image of the mark you might have gotten a quicker response. I think other forum members are confused about the first character, which I believe is “tian,” meaning “heaven” in Chinese. The second character is “jiang,” meaning river. So “heavenly river” or “river of heaven,” if the bowl was made by a Chinese potter.

天 江, in Chinese, pronounced “tian jiang,” could also be translated as “celestial river.”
