label levels:

There is currently no available "Beginner" label. The following is the default level label: Pottery was one of the crafts produced in the early 20th century during the Arts and Crafts movement. The potter, Chauncey Thomas (1877-1950), worked in Deerfield, Massachusetts, for a few brief years between 1909 to 1911. The young girl watching him was unlikely his assistant, but the photograph was so titled to capture the viewer's imagination.
