A Few of my Favorite Things

These two guys just went back in the kiln for a second firing. They just might be my most favorite things to date. The large one is a box and it took me three tries to get one that survived. They are inspired by all of the barns I have been photographing around Chatham County and I really like them a lot. I am entering them in a show called Scope: the North Carolina Landscape. I think they are appropriate for this show. Hope they make it in!
I like these little pinch pot cups a lot right now too, but they are a pain in the ass to make, can't see me staying on this one for too long, but we'll see.....
and then the little baskets, a la Judith Duff, so much fun to make and I think they are great for the upcoming Saxapahaw shows with the Farmer's Market/Music Series this summer. Perfect for strawberries or blueberries or chocolate!

Thanks Meredith! I think the baskets would be a great Mother's Day present filled with chocolates! Anything is better with chocolate I believe :)

Thanks Laura! I like this cup too. The last one got the blueberry matte glaze inside, not sure what I'm going to put in this one yet.

You do such lovely work! A real pleasure to have a look at what you are up to. Love the barns. Happy Birthday (a few days late) to Wesley. The Jeff Martin painting looks really special, I am sure it will be treasured.

I especially like the baskets with feet! So cute. But, of course, the barns are show stoppers! Good work.

LOVE the barns! I think they're perfect for the landscape show you mentioned. They are really, really nice. They have the same "soul" that old barns have.
