About the Authors Dr. Margaret Carney is a ceramics historian, university professor, museum curator, researcher, and part-time bassoonist. She holds college degrees in anthropology and art history including a Ph.D. focused on Chinese ceramics. She has lectured extensively, written other books and numerous articles about world ceramic history, lived in central China for several years, and has a fondness for iceskating, cats and marzipan. Ken Galvas and his wife Yvonne started collecting American Art Pottery in 1975, shortly after they were married. The love of collecting has not changed, although the types of pottery collected over the years has. One constant in the ever changing collection has been their love of the tiles produced by the Flint Faience and Tile Company. Along with their children Lindsey and Jonathan, Ken and Yvonne have eagerly sought out the best examples of Flint Faience and all the related information they could find. After meeting Dr. Margaret Carney in 2002, a friendship was formed that resulted in this book. Ken and Yvonne continue to work and live in the Flint area.
