The label identifies two arts Denis and Jane Parshall. This duo created art in Akron, Ohio. Many pieces were formed by Denis and then glazed by Jane. There is not much known about these two artist but we are fortunate to have acquired this piece directly from the artist. The owl is one of two pieces we are offering that Denis and Jane produced.
