Hi Heath,

i have a friend who got me into this through his glass collecting. Ive seen some susie singer and rose cabat pieces that i really like. Im interested in the high end artists who do more one of kind type pieces rather than the factory made stuff.

you would need to find which pottery floats your boat first,as you are in the States it might be better to check out potters who work in America

Not a book Heath but Ed and I have put links to two studio pottery collection on this site under the heading "Studio collection" - that might be good for you to look through and see if there is anything you like.
