I have posted this a couple of times, but it seems not to have arrived
on the list, so am trying again. Thanks, Mel or Joyce!

Here goes, then...

Yoshua Schori (Israel)
(Crystalline glazed work with contrasting sections.) (I think the
glaze is sometimes allowed to start to re-melt, perhaps, giving a
unique soft look to the crystals.)

Mary Jane Lundy (Halifax, NS, Canada)
(Colourful sculptural work with low fired glazes) (Birds, fishes,

Sammie Nicely (Atlanta, GA, USA)
(Potter, teacher, mask maker, folk artist) (Continues to reflect and
explore his rural East Tennessee and African heritages)

Jordan Taylor (Stony Meadow Pottery) (Union Dale, PA, USA)
(Wood fires; built his own kiln; throws large pots that he makes larger
by throwing tops separately) (Very artistic site)

Deborah Schwartzkopf (Archie Bray Foundation) (Helena, MT, USA)
(Elegant functional porcelain pottery forms, salt fired at cone 10 in
oxidation using glazes with softly glowing colours) (Website best in
IE, or Opera but not fully functional in Mozilla and similar browsers.)

Carla Potter (Anchorage, AK, USA)
(Sculptural pieces with many protrusions, inspired by the sea and its
creatures) (Current work is porcelain with high fire oxidation glazes)

Lee Akins (Dallas, TX) (Plano, TX, USA)
(Collin County Community College, Spring Creek)
(Professor of Art, Ceramics) (Work is made in terra cotta often
combining figurative imagery and the traditional clay vessel.)

(Interview conducted in 2001 by Margaret Carney for Smithsonian)
(Discusses the Syracuse National Ceramics show of the Vietnam era, when
Robert Turner, Jeff Schlanger, and Peter Voulkos suspended the jurying
process and instead invited people to exhibit work who hadn't even
submitted work for the show.)
