  1. I have just visited the Pathmakers exhibition in new York. I would like a copy of the July 15 issue of your Journal on the theme of the exhibition. Can you tell me when it will be published?
    Kind regards

  2. Greetings,
    I am attempting to reach Tanya Harrod, with regards to the ceramic artist Joslyn Tilson. I am a specialist at Clars Auction Gallery, were we have consigned two of her terracotta sculptural works for our November auction. They were both formerly part of a 2010 exhibition at Galerie Besson, Royal Arcade, London, “Calle Lunga S. Barnaba” and “S. Toma”, 11″h x 8″w. Might you have some since of value for this pieces? I do not want to under value them and unintentionally damage her sales record. Any assistance would be greatly appreciate. Take care,

  3. To Whom It May Concern:

    I am on an endeavor to have my mothers contribution to porcelain art recognized. She was born and raised here in the state of Arkansas. Recently, I had some of her work appraised by Little Rock appraiser Jennifer Carmen and she said that my mothers porcelain work compares to Lladro porcelain. She taught porcelain extensively throughout the southeast US and had over 70 published articles in ceramic journals in US. Her techniques and abilities were sought after worldwide. Her work began in the late 1960’s in casting of clay ceramics and she advanced exclusively to porcelain by the mid 1980’s until her death in 2010. She advanced herself into the mixing of certain mediums to produce her own exclusive colors for skin tones, etc. She was known for ability to produce beautiful flowers and blend colors that produced outstanding works and one of a kind porcelain works of art. My endeavor is to have her recognized for her contribution to Arkansas as an outstanding artist. My father Dean Wisdom is still living and was married to my mother for over 50 years. He owns much of her work, as I do. I have contacted The Arkansas Heritage Museum and The Craft Council of America. Any help or direction you could provide would greatly be appreciated. If you would like photos of some of her work, I would be happy to send them to you. I promise you will not be disappointed. Truly, she was an outstanding artists. Thank you for your time.
