I met Tim Scarlett when he taught in the Center for Talented Youth program here at F&M some years ago. Now he is a professor at Michigan Technological University.
Tim is currently running the Utah Pottery Project. The goals of the project are:
- Catalog the immigrant pottery makers and clay industry workers of Utah's Nineteenth-Century
- Locate and identify the archaeological sites from operating potteries
- Catalog known examples of Utah Pottery in museum collections
- Academic Study
- Make information available to everyone
Tim may not be Nathaniel Hawthorne, but you should give his blog a read.
