Janet Kaiser on wed 20 mar 02

May I offer my congratulations to Veena in public, please Mel? I got
the mail from and went straight down to the names
beginning with R to see... Held my breath all the time... It's a long
list... And then BINGO!!! Veena Raghavan, black on white... I could
not have been more excited if I had had my own work selected.

At least two Brits too... Peter Beard and Phil Rogers. Both have
written books and are good friends. Even physically similar... Gentle

Now I come to scan the list again... Barbara Brown, Bacia Edelman,
Marie Gibbons, Gail Nichols... All clay arters... Congratulations
everyone! Including those I have no doubt missed... Sorry!

One name which I do not know, but appealed tremendously: Wolfgang
Vegas. Probably a little discussed phenomena in the ceramic world:
"stage names" or performance names... WV is a name one would not
easily forget and no doubt helps. I wonder how many people have
suggested he add Amadeus as a middle name? We have a local potter who
is continuing the bardic tradition of using a "pen name" for her work:
Gwenllian Dwyfor. Friends and family know her as Gwen Tucker, but
Dwyfor is the local administrative area within the county. Sort of
kills two birds with one stone. Iwan Bala is another artist who
adopted the town name of Bala (which is famous for its religious
college and centre of Welsh culture) in preference to plain Mr.
Roberts. Sure beats becoming "Gwen the Pots" or "Iwan Paint"... which
is the usual way of distinguishing all the Owens, Jones, Roberts,
Williams, etc. from one another.

Do you know of any potters using an artist or pen name? (Keeping
maiden names does not count!)
