It’s not often I endorse anything on this blog. I mainly intend to educate and inform about Old Edgefield alkaline glazed stoneware pottery; however,I wanted to share a great site for artists and art patrons, alike. Larry Hitchcock and Sharon Sinclair have put an enormous amount of time, energy and finances into America Creates. This is more than a site to sell art. It is an art community, with comprehensive links to artists of all disciplines, art associations and groups, co-ops, museums and so much more. Here, you can interact with the artist! See some of today’s best artists and craftsman in America at work by viewing videos and slide shows.
