"Someone recently referred to me as her 'own ceramic historian.' I liked that idea.  Sort of like a traveling expert or paid specialist in the field of ceramic history."


Have you ever wanted your own ceramic historian?

Here's all you have to do to have your own ceramic art historian:  email, phone, fax, text message, or yodel; provide funds for travel, lodging, meals and an honorarium.
