sources for surface qualities show up all the time
often from the most surprising places
this... the side of an evaporation pan
from on top of the studio wood stove
lots of cinnamon and vinegar...
time to consider some sedimentary layering perhaps?

crabapples in the morning...

thawing frost on crabapple this morning...

Like an echo
the drip-drop-drip of showers:
falling autumn leaves.

morning sun...

morning sun in the backyard...
were you to visit the gallery,
this would be your view as you began to walk out, heading back to your car...
there's still time, the peak of color has not yet been reached
take a drive, see a beautiful landscape
and come to Bog Pond Pottery along the way
distinctively unusual pots in an excellent atmosphere...

Traditional Jar

Traditional Jar
when I made this I thought it was very traditional
in shape, concept, and etc...
just a round open jar with a  clean lip rim
this one has a beautiful surface
and a nice quiet presence...
