We went to Indiana to visit our daughter and her family for Thanksgiving. We had a great time. Our daughter set out a wonderful meal! We also got to spend a lot of time with our granddaughter. She looks just like our daughter did at that age. What a treat.
We also did a quick trip to Packrat Pat's antique shop. I dug through the racks and piles, and found a few things. The most interesting was a mid / late 20th century hand-thrown vase signed by a someone named John Patterson. It had the same color palette as a previous crock I bought there. However, the form and hand was quite different. We liked the colors and the uniqueness of the piece.
The proprietor said that it, like the other piece, was made by a local pottery guild in the South Bend, IN area. It was known as the '100 Club'. I'd like to find out more about it.
