John...I now get what you were talking about earlier. I am trying to consider impact and the type of lifestory and artwork to most interest my teenage audience.  


I am really excited to see women will be a significant part of this list.


I may have to go to 25....

The Arts and Crafts Movement had women decorators. Some became quite famous. The saturday Night Girls in Boston painted tiles. Newcomb Pottery in New Orleans has a traveling show on right now. Great design work.

Early American potters, Goodwin & Websters, the bird & fish potters, named that for the cobalt decoration on crocks and jugs,NC.

I used them as an example of the potters that made this country's utility stoneware and help develop this nations growth.

The folk potters of the south, the Hewell's of Georgia, 150 yrs of family pottery, The Catawba valley potters, generations of family potters

The potters, unnamed that developed ash glazes for whiskey jugs from clay and ash, as good as Asian counterparts century's earlier.

Isaac Button, who dug the clay to make the kiln, then dug & processed the clay to turn a ton a day..

Harding Black of San Antonio Tx, that spent a life time rediscovering great reduction glazes.

Just a different POV about the giants in clay, those who we stand on their shoulders.
