I could only show a few women potters, but not in sepia tones.
Some of these women potters really influenced me. I did a whole month of blogs a few years ago of women artists for Women's History Month, March 2011. It's already been posted, so I won't copy myself, just give you the links HERE.
Adelaid Alsop Robineau developed new glazes, was a leading ceramic designer, and worked to develop American ceramics in the 19th century. She's pretty close to the Sepia Saturday posting.

|Installation, The Dinner Party by Judy Chicago|
"The table is triangular and measures 14.63 m (forty-eight feet) on each side. Each place setting features a table runner embroidered with the woman's name and images or symbols relating to her accomplishments, with a napkin, utensils, a glass or goblet, and a plate. Many of the plates feature a butterfly- or flowerlike sculpture as a vulva symbol. A collaborative effort of female and male artisans, The Dinner Party celebrates traditional female accomplishments such as textile arts (weaving, embroidery, sewing) and china painting, which have been framed as craft or domestic art, as opposed to the more culturally valued, male-dominated fine arts.
