Tim Taunton (Ceramics Professor, LaGrange College, LaGrange, GA, USA)
Taunton works in the figurative ceramic sculpture genre. His pieces
are made with Earthenware, terra sigillata, slips, glazes, and other
non-clay material. He has self-published a book that documents the
tools and techniques he uses in making his work, entitled: "The Clay
Figure." Though Taunton is a sculptor, one of his students, Ryan
Hancock, makes very nice functional vessels.

The idsgr8 Collection (Silver Spring, MD, USA): (Click on "Cereamics")
While searching the Internet recently for online images of work by

is for sale, and was mentioned once on a post to Clayart. The
collection is excellent and the images of the work are well done.

John Glick, Melissa Green, Shinsaku Hamada, Karen Karnes, Steven &
Susan Kemeneffy, Julie & Tyrone Larsen, Bernard Leach, David Leach,

Whose collection it is, was not mentioned. (Evidently, the person or
estate selling the pieces wishes to remain anonymous.)
Here is the post to Clayart:
(It would appear that the works on the site are still for sale,
although it's possible the site could need updating since it was put on
the www nearly a year ago.)
