"It always amazes me what miracles can happen with a lump of clay in just the right hands"
Many of the photos shown are in my collection. I will share what I learn about the kilns, artists, styles, and marks. This is a work in progress. Come along with me as I learn.
Because my blog traffic has grown, I will add marks from various other sources.
** NOTICE: I can no longer take readers queries on personal pieces. General comments and questions still accepted.
