ABOUT THE BCCMR Debra Sloan started to collect BC ceramic marks, historical and contemporary, in 2005, while preparing for the Potters Guild of BC’s (PGBC) 50th anniversary, it became apparent that ways and means of recognizing individual artists had not been established. Recognizing artist’s work is an essential to establish the artist’s provenance. Since 2005 she has solicited biographies from BC ceramic artists while collecting their marks. She has also photographed marks in situ at collector homes and second-hand shops. Included in this registry are some unknown marks, and for some artists, incomplete information. Do not hesitate to contact Debra to correct or add information. debraesloan@gmail.com This is an ongoing project and Debra will continue to solicit Marks and Bios from BC ceramic artists. Please look for registry forms through the newsletters of the CCBC and the PGBC.
