This section filters the list of potters and their marks by Australian state. Use the links above to browse potters and descriptions of their marks by state or click on the mosaic of images on the left to go to our small but growing image pool on Flickr ordered into sets by state.
A state filter can make it easier to identify a pot if you know its state of origin. It provides an overview of the potters practicing professionally in each state over the last fifty years. And it also makes it easier for those of us contributing to this resource to see at a glance who is missing from the list.
Not surprisingly, there is a high proportion of NSW potters in the seed data. This reflects the distribution of entries by state in the directories published by the Potters Society of Australia, as this diagram shows.
To some extent, the national association has always doubled as a state association for NSW members, and this is reflected in the number of NSW potters in the current online directory as well.
It will be interesting to see how numbers pan out as our list grows.
