Surfing with Helen Bates - May 15 - USA, Germany

Clay Gallery (Ann Arbor, MI, USA)
(Click the "Members" link then the text links to view individual
members' work.)

Baker, Stan (Highers Pottery Studio) (Ann Arbor, MI, USA)
Tableware and other functional pottery, including a line of cook ware
made with special clay that Mr. Baker states will withstand the heat
shock of the oven without preheating the pot. (Besides his own work,
Stan has an online show of work by his mentor J.T. Abernathy)

Seidel, Diana (Austin, TX, USA)
Besides her own very fine work, Diana and her husband have on view many
pieces from their pottery collection, which is international in scope.

Texas Crafts Exhibition (Winedale Spring Festival) (Round Top, TX, USA)

(Center for American History, The University of Texas at Austin)
(I think at least a third in the Contemporary Crafts are potters.)

Texas Clay Festival (New Braunfels, Gruene, TX, USA)
(Click "Participants" for names, bios [with image of representative
work] of the 2004 exhibitors. There is also a slide show of the venue
but no captions.) [Note, the texasclayfestival site used to be an
"org" but is now a "com" domain.]

Renner Pottery (Germany) (Since 1884)
The Renner pottery is a 125 year old family-run business now headed by
Friedrich Sommer, a great-grandson of the founder. (His daughter Eva,
has joined the business as well, making 5 generations of pottery -
makers at Renner Pottery.)
