Persistence, perseverance and patience. These are the qualities that Plinth Gallery owners Jonathan Kaplan and his wife Dorothy Bensusan credit for their growing reputation as a resource for fine contemporary ceramics.
This themed issue of Studio Potter is entitled "Generations". "Source Material" is Jonathan's acknowledgment of the contributions of 2 key employees when he operated Ceramic Design Group in Steamboat Springs Colorado.
