Sad news on Alex Matisse' blog
I read Alex's blog this morning about the pots that broke in the firing and I just felt so mournful for him. I know the effort that went into the firing from the first ball of clay placed on the wheel to unloading all of the pots. I was so sad for his news. It does seem trivial to mourn pottery when so many have died this month in war and natural disasters, but nonetheless, it is a labor of love to make pottery like his and hard to lose any pieces at all.
I do love this wonderful pot that survived and borrowed the photo to share.
