January’s new topics

Reid, Bill

January was an interesting month, with members out and about, finding new marks and connections that needed to be recorded. We added 25 new asterisked topics and updated the entry on Joan Sayers to include the marks used by her parents John and Phyllis Garrett. While I meant to get back to the Fusions collection, I got sidetracked with gallery work. During the month, we were visited by the potter Greg Liney who was able to provide us with information about his Creation Pottery at Mia Mia. Peter provided a number of new Western Australian marks and also acquired images of the marks used by Greg Sugden and Merrie Hamilton.
