This plate is a nice stoneware piece by a potter from Kansas. I used to purchase a few of his items at the St. Augustine FL Arts & Crafts show each year...but I can't figure out his name. The distinctive red/blues of his glazes can be found through-out my house. If you know who he is, please give me his name. His signature is a big O with a slash through it and little legs. No help.
