This is the one piece of pottery that I bought on eBay! A year or so ago, I was thrilled to find a piece of Mississippi pottery on eBay, especially from a Mississippi potter I did not have represented (yet) in my collection.
Mississippi Mud Works in Ocean Springs, MS, is owned and operated by Jim and Betty Francis. Bravo to them for having a comprehensive website to lure folks like me in as committed fans! Here is the page about the artists.
I adore the colors in this piece!
Do you think it is the same glaze as on this vase in their catalog? Gee, I am such a sucker for vases and pitchers!
Oh, goodie! They have a cake stand! It is priced in the .pdf file called "Tableware Price List" at the bottom of the left side menu.
Now to decide if I want it in the blue gray like the vase linked above or in a lavender glaze like this vase. (I like the MMW monogram on that lavender vase also.
Now I wonder if this vase is a "Pre Katrina" piece. Along the Coast, we make such designations.
I'll email and ask Jim and Betty what happened to their studio during Katrina.
