In July we created 26 new topics as well as substantially updating the entries for Aiston Park Pottery and Gillian Broinowski. Newly identified potters include Jean Avery, Noel Dickie, Dan Limon, Liz Morris and Lynne Rice. On our winter break in the gallery, I have been listing and packing away pieces left over from our “Forged by Fire” exhibition. As a result, three more woodfirers – Zak chalmers, Tim Holmes and Duncan Ratcliffe – now have topics. In my spare time, having finished ‘A’, I have been making sure existing ‘B’ and ‘C’ biographies in my online shop are all in Australian Potters’ Marks and also creating entries for ‘B’ potters with marks that we only know about from the printed directories. Every now and then, I dip into other sections of the alphabet, hence Jan Dunn, Ljubov Seidl and Barbara Swarbrick.
