About me[edit]

After having researched the history of California pottery (ceramics), specializing in the history of Southern California potteries for thirty odd years, I will be contributing my knowledge of ceramics, ceramic artists & designers to Wikipedia. I am a writer and researcher. I will not use my own published works as citations for articles if other sources are available. I am well aware, and abide to all WP:COI (conflict of interest) and WP:NOR (no original research) Wikipedia guidelines & policies.

Areas of knowledge and expertise[edit]

California and US studio ceramic movements & artists 1945-1980; Ceramic manufacturers worldwide; Southern California ceramic industry 1870-1980; 20th to 21st century tabletop - tableware, dinnerware & glassware.

Tip of the day[edit]

Another Tip of the moment...

Brilliant pictures
Sample photo

You probably know that Wikipedia's best articles become Featured Articles. But did you know that a similar process exists for images? Go to Featured Picture Candidates to help judge which images are both attractive and valuable to Wikipedia. Of course, the best can be found on Featured pictures. Many of these photos are taken by Wikipedians. If you are a photographer, you can add yourself to the list, or encourage others by nominating great photos you come across. Feel free to use featured pictures in your own works (according to the terms on the image description page).
