I'm pretty darn sure it says "Harlin Black," but I can't find anything on that name, on Google anyway.

I bought it for a few reasons: It was dated 1958 and that's a good period for art pottery; he was obviously a trained potter and knew about glazes; I could read the signature, and it had reference numbers and letters, which make it seem like he had an established studio or was well-known.

Problem is, can't find a single thing about him :( Has anyone ever heard of Harlin Black before?

Seems that the Baylor University in Texas has his archive.

A little background

Harding Black was a well known and respected American studio potter. Considered a self taught "glaze" master, he wrote a regular column on glazes and their chemistry for Ceramics Monthly Magazine in the 1950's. Back issues of the magazine are available "by the decade" on dvd from their website.
