Bird Scratchings

Since I've joined the blogging nation I've discovered lots of new (to me) and wonderful potmakers. Ron Philbeck works in Shelby, NC and I've become a big fan. I need to own some of this lad's pots one day. He has an easy way with sgraffito decoration and this is a planter of mine inspired by his work. I've never been too interested in drawing on pots myself, but this was fun.

Nice bird, Dan. Looks like you have some sea gulls flying in there too!

Thanks so much for the kind words Dan. I have admired your pots for many, many years. That article that came out in CM with you and Van Gilder is almost worn out from me looking at it so much. All the best, Ron
