Dealer Troy Schmidt, Red Dragon Pottery: Ceramics

Always experimenting, IGMA Fellow Troy Schmidt creates 1:12 scale hand-thrown porcelain pottery in a wide range of unique glazes. His ceramic artware also includes 19th century grotesque face jugs, unusual "brickware" inspired by antiquities, and more. He makes life-size pottery as well. Email: RedDragonPottery@gmail.com  Web: http://reddragonpottery.com
