Two years on

Entries in Australian Potters' Marks as of 31 March 2014The Australian Potters Marks project is now two years old. As of today, there are 1276 entries in the alphabetic list and and 800 of these are linked to topics in the Identifying Australian Pottery group on Flickr. This means that over the last year we have added 184 new entries and created 266 new topics. Almost two-thirds of entries now have linked topics and the image sets of known marks are starting to become a substantial resource in their own right. This is a significant accomplishment for a group depending solely on volunteer effort. It’s true that the number of mystery marks keep growing as well, but we always knew that the seed data included only a fraction of the potters who have practiced professionally in Australia over the last fifty years. The architecture is proving robust as a means of dealing with an open-ended project and I look forward to seeing a similar number of new entries and topics added in the year to come.

    • Hi Vic, this resource is only available online. I haven’t any plans at this stage to produce a printed version. If you are just after the “Two Years On” blog entry I’ve added a “Print” button to the “Share this” space. Thinking about it, perhaps I could produce a print version just of this WordPress blog – ie just of the alphabetic and state lists – but readers would still need to go online to link through to the topics on the Identifying Australian Pottery group on Flickr. I wonder if there would be a demand for this…
