Ben and Dennis Parks (Tuscorora, NV, USA)
Tuscarora Summer Pottery School started in a Nevada ghost town by
Dennis Parks and run now by his son Ben. Dennis is still there of
course, as Artist-in-Residence and Instructor Emeritus.

Amit May Fine Arts (San Francisco, CA, USA)
(Diversity Art) In "Artists and Artworks" in the Latin American
section, is work by Marlene Sanchez, a San Francisco Area potter who
was born in Bogota, Colombia. She makes delicate thrown vessels and
vital hand-built figures. Also in the Latin American subdirectory, in
the section: "Through Artists Eyes: Glimpses of Cuba" you can see a
few ceramic works.

Earth and Fire Gallery (Vienna, VA, USA)
The Earth and Fire Gallery specializes in functional pottery. Of
special interest is the current "Five plus Five" exhibit with the
pottery of Linda Christianson plus Lisa Buck; Malcolm Davis plus Matt
Hyleck; Jeff Oestreich plus Adam Posnak; Phil Rogers plus Annemette
Hjortshoj; and Bill van Gilder plus Allison Severence. There is more
to see in the "Past Exhibitions", so plan to stay for a bit.

Laurie dill-Kocher (Roberts Wesleyan University, Rochester, NY, USA)
Kocher is a textile artist with broad interests. Part of her website
features an invitational series on the vessel, which is apparently held
biennially in Rochester, NY. In 2002, it featured functional work in
clay, showing one or two images per artist, and giving links to the
artists's websites, where they exist. (Earlier and later shows feature
found natural materials, metal, and wood.) (Click on "Vessel
Invitational Series" then on "2000."

Suzanne and Dale Tucker (Hot Springs, Ar, USA)
(Historic District Antiques - Click on "ANTIQUE PORCELAIN POTTERY" for
pieces currently available, or "SOLD ANTIQUES" for what has been
recently sold. At the moment, there are several Niloak vases
available, I note.)
