Hello all,

Here are some more "surfing" finds.

Becca Van Fleet (Eaton, New Hampshire, USA)

While I was visiting the last site above, which is an incredibly rich
site for British pottery, I visited its sales link and browsed around a
little. I found the work of Phillip Wood:
(Delightful sprigged and slip-painted earthenware)

techniques in her continuing search for "pure form.")
