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!
