Well known regional pottery featured in my work

Many of my still life paintings feature pottery and ceramics. Some of these are from a well known artisan pottery company that still has a thriving business today. The markings on the pottery are distinctive, and the pieces would be recognizable in my paintings, which I intend to sell. Is there any legal conflict with that? Thanks! -Kathryn

Don't think so - pottery itself can't be copyrighted or trademarked.
