Red Wing, Minn.: The Red Wing Collectors Society, the largest collecting club dedicated to the preservation of Red Wing and other American pottery, has started a Wikipedia page for the Red Wing Pottery Industry. The goal of this page is to share Red Wing’s rich pottery history with the world and create more interest in collecting Red Wing stoneware, dinnerware, and art pottery.
Wikipedia is a multilingual, Web-based, free content encyclopedia project. It is written collaboratively by volunteers from all around the world. Wikipedia is an ongoing work where anyone can contribute information to its articles at any time.
Over the past several months the RWCS Businesses Office and Laura Beall, RWCS member, have created the framework for the Red Wing Pottery Wikipedia page. In order to develop this page more rapidly, we would like to encourage members to visit the Red Wing Pottery page and add content, pictures, and references.
“We hope that the development of the Wikipedia page will extend the preservation of Red Wing’s rich pottery history into this online media and create interest for new collectors,” said Stacy Wegner, Executive Director, Red Wing Collectors Society.
Wikipedia is very easy to use whether you are a casual or experienced internet user. The editing feature has a number of tutorials and help pages to assist new contributors to Wikipedia. If members are interested in working on this project in detail, you are encouraged to contact the RWCS Business Office or start today.
The Red Wing Collectors Society was founded in 1977 in Red Wing, Minn. and is devoted to educating people about all American pottery. There are more than 4,500 members worldwide. The Red Wing Potteries had diverse pottery lines that included stoneware, dinnerware and art pottery.
