The black mark you see is the McCarty signature of the River running through [that would be the Mississippi River :-) ] Check out Pup and Lee'ss site to get a feel of the Delta - where roots run deep, and history and culture have intertwined to create a place unique to the world.

Today's TRUE COLOUR is Cobalt Blue - this was a snap for mom - you see, she grew up in the Mississippi Delta on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi where the world famous Pup and Lee McCarty are from [friends of her mom's] - Pup and Lee create the most wonderful pottery pieces and mom has dozens of them - after all, every gal from the Delta knows how to entertain with style and grace. We've taken pictures of a few pieces - it would take her a week to photograph them all - belive me when I tell you she has tons. Most people buy it in the green or brown - but Mom has always loved the Cobalt so that's what most of her pieces are. She has everything from a sugar bowl to huge serving platters. She drinks Sweet Iced Tea from McCarty Tumblers, cocktails are from McCarty "highballs" - she serves from McCarty Platters and Bowls - well, you get the picture - McCarty is very big in our house. I even have my own McCarty Bowl!
