It seems that as the list of artists housed in this community grows that it begs the necessity for a way to categorize artists, materials, firings, pots vs. sculpture, figurative vs. abstract, et cetera. Alphabetical is democratic and all, but it would be great if I could search for all figurative artists or woodfire potters or even woodfire figurative artists.
What about simply changing the thumbnail image associated with each artist to an image of the art ... not the artist. Could be a simple way to maintain the alphabetical order and also allow for visitors seek out a 'type' of work at a glance.
Also ... As the site evolves and changes ... who is making the changes to the site? I know all of this takes time. If help is needed ... collecting, converting images ... or whatever ... I can help ... let me know.
