I was so excited to find this information!! I have two pieces which are Dave’s. One is marked with the horseshoe and 3 for 3 gallon. It’s so gorgeous!!

Is there any validity to the theory that Dave’s unsigned pots leaned to the right? Supposedly this was an act of revolt to not being allowed to sign his own name all of the time.
