monochrome glazes)

Tom Phelps (Floyd, VA, USA)

includes purely functional wheel-thrown vessels, large sculptural
pieces, and hand-sculpted face jugs.) (Shown on line are his "Face

MaPó Kinnord-Payton
(An assistant professor of art at Xavier University of Louisiana) (She

Martin McWilliam (Sandhatten, Lower Saxony, Germany)

training at Dartington, further experience in Europe and Japan before

Art and Culture at the Werkschule Oldenburg, in Oldenburg, Germany.)
(McWilliam makes coil/slab-built stoneware "Trompe-l'œil" objects that
are coloured with kaolin slips and then wood-fired. They give the idea
of simple bowls and jars, but are flattened or indeed fully
2-dimensional in some cases.)

Rebecca Harvey(Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England, UK)
(The English potter, not her American namesake...) (Work is hand thrown
and produced in series and sets; all pots are individual.) (Functional
pots of an extreme elegance and simplicity of form. Decoration is
austere as the form, utilizing slip application and soda firing.)

(Assistant Professor, Ceramics, Ohio State U. Department of Art) (The
American potter, not her English namesake!) (Works in porcelain with a
sense of colour consciously reminiscent of old English Majolica)

decorative aesthetic.)
