Identifying Pottery Treasures
with Pottery Trademarks

This is a partial collection of potters trademarks to possibly help someone to identify an old hand me down or yard sale treasured piece of pottery which would otherwise sit in an obscure corner of a house.

By looking at these identifying pottery trademarks, one can tell who the potter was, where it was made, the approximate time it was made and about how valuable it may be.

Sometimes very valuable pieces of pottery are overlooked in junk stores and yard sales just because a person is unfamiliar with the potters identifying trademarks that the various artist use to identify their work.

Most people have a certain potters-work that they like to collect so it would be simple to read up on and memorize the identifying pottery trademarks of that artist.
Now it's a lot more complicated if a person is hunting for any kind of valuable pieces of pottery for resale because of the many pottery trademarks that they would have to be familiar with.
In a case like that, it would be better to buy a book on the different pottery trademarks or even print articles like this one to carry with.

Well, good luck on your pottery identifying treasure hunt, I hope this article helps you find what you are looking for.

Have you ever come up with a good idea while working with your handmade pottery and thought that you would like to share it with others? You have? Well, why not send it to us and we will add it to the tips page for all to see.

Handmade pottery can be a very gratifying hobby that produces fun and satisfying results. For many people it's an enjoyable release that is created by working an inanimate mound of clay into a beautiful work of art that you made through your artistic abilities.

The best way of starting out is to take a few lessons from Youtube. You will probably waste quite a bit in materials when you first get started. Figuring out how to truly make handmade pottery correctly and shape into what you want it to be can be quite an ordeal. The different tools that a normal shop will have can be fun to try. You will soon see which ones you like to use the most and then when you are ready you will know which ones to buy.

With the help of the internet, you can now purchase most if not all of your ceramic and pottery tools and supplies online. We are located far from any well supplied dealers and yet working with reliable ceramic and pottery suppliers online has allowed us to recieve most of our orders within a timely manner.

When you get all set up, just enjoy the hobby and have fun at it. Some people get pretty serious and start selling their creations at craft fairs and small stores, but others just like to create items for themselves, relatives, and friends. Whichever kind of handmade pottery you desire to endeavor, enjoy the hobby and have fun doing it.
