Four years on

2015

The Australian Potters Marks project is four years old this month and we now have 1720 entries in the alphabetic list with about 85% of entries linked to topics in the Identifying Australian Pottery group on Flickr. In raw figures, this means that last year we added around 200 completely new linked entries as well as adding links to around 60 more of the seed data entries. Among the new entries are a number of previously intractable mysteries now solved. As a voluntary group we have done very well indeed but there is still much to be done in 2016. Our aim will be to keep working on getting the remaining  seed data entries linked and on identifying marks for the thousands of potters and potteries who never had entries in the printed directories. If you are a potter who would like to be added to Australian Potters’ Marks or a collector, dealer, friend or relative with attributed examples of a potter’s work, don’t hesitate to contact us with what you know. Information can also be posted on our allied Facebook groups – Australian Pottery and Australian Studio Pottery Collectors.
