That dang pear!

Remember the pear that was published in Studio Potter last month? I got a very nice letter in the mail today from Lark Books. It was chosen for the 500 Raku that will be out in Spring 2011. I wish I knew who owned that thing! It was sold through the NC Craft Gallery. This pear is sure getting a lot of time in the spotlight, kinda wish I still had it. The metal stand that it's on is from the scrap yard at the metal shop at Penland. I collected it when I took the Raku workshop there and it's really a great piece of metal. I still have that. Guess I need to make more pears!!! Thanks to Steven Forbes deSoule for this great glaze!

Woo -- congrats on the Lark book -- and how cool that they saw the image & contacted you! That's sweet! & it is a delicious pear.

Hey Judy: I had submitted the pear photo about a year ago, but I do wonder if having it published in Studio Potter influenced the choice? Gerry shot the photo and I have always liked it.

Congrats on yet another publication! Just imagine how many requests you'll get once the book comes out! Thought about making anymore?

Thanks guys! Kari, yes I am feeling an itch to get back to some Raku, I saw orange leaves on the ground today! It will soon be cool enough to get out there and play with the fire!!!
