Gregory Felando and John Greise (Arcanum Ranch Pottery) (Whitethorn,
(Mendocino County), CA, USA)

Greg Felando and John Greiser established Arcanum Ranch Pottery in 1978.
They started with wood-firing, but moved to gas firings (propane) in
the mid-1980's as the supply of wood becames scarcer. Many one-of-kind
functional pieces. Glazes are quite varied.

Cornelius was one of the "Ceramics Heros" in the 2000 Kecskemet show:
