More Old Pots

Mighty busy these last few days: meeting with city officials all week hoping to get some support for LibertyTown, First Friday opening reception, Bowl-o-rama Saturday (we make bowls at LibertyTown for Empty Bowls), new helper Jason arrived Saturday evening to move in to his new digs, late night playoff games courtesy of my wonderful DVR and today we've been eating brunch and drinking tea and touring the town. So my default blog subject remains old work.
3 legged watering can.
 I lost my mind for a few years back in the early '90's and did my best to explore ideas outside of the tradition that has usually guided me. Colored slips brushed and trailed, matt glazes that were usually sprayed, thrown and altered forms with lots of exaggerated parts.  Fun to make and easy to get attention, I eventually returned to the brown pots I know and love.
3 legged something or other.

I love these lost your head pieces, right up my alley.

Hey, I remember those pots. You seemed fairly sane at the time.

Love seeing the old work! So interesting to see where one has been and where they go.

Those are fun!
Wonder if there are birds that could come out of looking at some of these old shapes?
It will be interesting to hear about how Jason works out- well I hope.

Dan, I've been wondering if the details of the Hannah and Doug workshop have been put together yet?

I am proud to own one of these three legged watering cans. I love it!...everyday.

Also, thank you for your generosity to donate studio space and clay, glazes and firing for Empty Bowls every year. Also for coffee, tea and yummy homemade cookies from a Master Potter. :)

Great work they remind me of some sort of strange animals! Very unusual.
