summer  sale 2014

 

I’ve been throwing and altering some steins for an upcoming benefit and for the sale here at the house on July 12 and 13. One of the great joys of making is to think about how folks enjoy their favorite beverage.

Bottoms up!

I look at things a lot. Once in a while I come across a scene or object that stops me still. On a drive from Wilmington Vermont on Saturday this building really spoke to me.

Sometimes it’s an antique Japanese bowl someone posts online. Sometimes it’s the way hundred year old hand-mixed concrete looks – pebbles, cracks and moss telling a story.

I’m reminded of an excerpt from Daniel Lanois’ film Here is What Is. Click on the link below to hear an excerpt from this documentary to hear Brian Eno speak a bit about the power an object can have.

What object has recently stopped you still?

This week I’m working on my first round of tiles. I opened the bisque kiln this morning to find them even and intact. So far, so good…

Now for the glaze fire and shrinkage adjustments.

These photos by MARCUS BUCK really float my boat. I see ghosts, memories, possibilities. I can’t stop looking at them.

Thank you for supporting the pottery in 2013. As I head into the studio every day, I’m aware of the blessings and grateful for this life. There’s nowhere I’d rather be. Stay tuned for more.
