My partner David Rofe and I run a gallery at Bemboka, NSW, called 'Australian Pottery at Bemboka'. I write a blog called 'Australian Pottery 1960s to date' and manage the 'Identifying Australian Pottery' discussion group on flickr.

For some years, I have been building a database of Australian potters and their marks. Early in 2012, I started an online project called 'Australian Potters' Marks' seeded with entries in the directories published by the Australian Potters’ Society from 1977-1996. To this I am gradually adding names from other published sources and links to topics discussing identified potters and their marks on the Identifying Australian Pottery group. Coupling the list with the discussion group is allowing us to conduct research on the fly. Using flickr groups is allowing us to build up an image pool of marks over time. I also maintain a list of Australian pottery resources on 'zotero' and use zotero tags to add a 'More information' link to the biographies being developed for Australian Potters' Marks.
