James Kasper and Jim Kasper

James Kasper (Prairie Dog Pottery) (Tipton, IA, USA)
(Kasper's personal website Current Work consists of woodfired pottery
and sculpture, especially boats, boxes, and sarcophagi.)
(Note that this is a different James Kasper than the Clayarter Jim
Kasper of Jensen Beach, Florida.)
(Lots of zoomable images of James Kasper's work on view at the website
of the Hudson River Gallery, Iowa City, IA, USA)

Jim Kasper (Clayarter) (Kafka Studios) (Jensen Beach, FL, USA)
(Jim never mentioned it, but his studio roof was destroyed by
Katrina. He has a couple of photos of the ruined roof on his website.
Presumably he has had time to repair it by now.)

(Wood Fired Pottery, kiln building workshops)

Lilli Crites Flesher (Putney Craft Tour, Putney, VT) (Westminster West,

until his death in 1965.) (Prior to that he and his father Walter
Austin Hull, wife Fran Hull, and sister Helene Mareau operated Hull
Santa Fe Pottery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.")
