Did you ever have any luck locating the potter?  From where was it purchased?  Full picture?

John,

No I have not Iidentified the potter yet. The bought was bought at Cass Bonsai Gardens and I have two with that mark. When I was at Jim Doyle's I noticed he had two pots made by the same potter. He could not ID the potter either. I'll post pics when I get a chance.

Hmm, I have one similar to the one the maple is in.  In fact, I might have picked it up on a trip to Cass/Bacus.  I'll check tonight to see how good my memory is, and if in fact they do match.

They say the memory is the second thing to go.  I can't remember what the first is.

What I thought I remembered was similar isn't so much, but maybe close?  Maybe not.  It's a Jack pot, so says the signature, and I think I remember purchasing it during the Evansville club visit to his house.

Jack also has a buddy, Bob Harris, that he made pots with and some of the ones from St. Louis might be his. I can't really see the marks well here.

It was a great weekend doing Satsuki work at Satsuki Bonsai-en with Dave Kreutz. A bonus was that this mark was identified. It is one of the marks used by Bob Harris in the mid 1990's.
