About this site : Find out more about identifying Shorter pottery
Posted by webteam on 2008/6/16 5:10:00 (6604 reads)

Photographs of what can be found on the base of Shorter pottery pieces and what they may mean are now available to view.
So far there are pics of backstamps and artists marks.

Please feel free to upload photos of your own Shorter items to the Shorter Gallery. This is a resource for anyone to use and we'd like it to be informative and extensive - so go ahead and upload your stuff!

If you have a query about an item of Shorter pottery, take a couple of minutes to become a member of the site (IT'S FREE!) and you will be able to access the Forum and submit news, articles and questions.

The aim of the Shorter Gallery is to enable Simply Shorter website visitors to share photos of their Shorter finds, thus creating what we hope will be a useful pool of information. (Membership is free!)

Some of us have, no doubt, read "The Shorter Connection", by Irene and Gordon Hopwood and appreciate the work they have done to identify so many Shorter pieces and designs. There are, obviously, many items and designs not illustrated within the book and Simply Shorter hopes to facilitate the building of an even larger reference source available to anyone interested in the work of this particular pottery.

Feel free to upload and share photos of your own item, items or collection with other enthusiasts.

Suggestions for specialist albums welcome, please email webteam@simplyshorter.co.uk
