John Bennett Pottery Story In The Newspaper

Recommended Posts

Fans of ceremics and Homer Laughlin might find this little story in the New York Times about John Bennett Pottery interesting.

Also, a descendent of Mr. Bennett, Robert Kelley of Lake Worth, FL, has compiled research of the enterprise into a very interesting blog, http://johnbennettpottery.org/
