A few for Adam Lavigne

Here are a few shohin pots that were purchased by Adam Lavigne from our study group, 'Noname'.  He took the photo with his iphone and easily sent it back to me so I could load it up here. I need to get one! When I post pics here it takes me quite awhile because I have to download, upload to picasa for editing, download to my desktop, find the right one, WHICH TAKES FOREVER ON AN APPLE btw, and upload to eblogger. Sure, I know there are other easier ways to do it but I am a bit of a slow learner when it comes to technology talking from one device to another.   'Ah, technology!'

Martha's Crescent

Been a bit busy lately. Several projects have been dicing up my time which is really quite alot considering that my pottery business is only part time. Between building my kiln shed for my new gas kiln, building a website (under construction), and working to get new stock made for the BSF convention this May, I have been quite stretched. 

I did have time to make this commissioned pot for a client on the west coast. She has a beautiful pine that  was acquired last January at the Joy Of Bonsai mini-convention in Bunnell. It was designed by Suthin into a beautiful work of art. Suthin helped design this crescent pot which I hope will make a nice combination. He suggested a dark grey/green gunmetal like color, but not glossy. This was a bit of a challenge yet I am pleased with the results.

There will be more crescents for purchase this May at the convention similar to the one above. Please feel free to share a comment or two here on my blog. I would love to know what you think.
Thanks for viewing.
