Pearadise

I am making pears again. I have to be in the mood for these and apparently the mood has struck. I have a few in the kiln right now. They were sitting on the table this weekend drying and the sun was crazy bright. I picked up my camera and shot this shadowy thing, then...
Gerry came into the room and said, here's a picture, and he shot this, show off....
and then I shot this one just because I could! I got an email from Lark Books that the 500 Raku complimentary issue will be coming sometime around March, can't wait to see my Raku pear in there, the one that I sold for a shameless price, I won't even tell you how much, lesson learned. Who has that thing anyway? It sold in the NC Craft Gallery. I would love to know who has it. Won't they be surprised at their bargain!

You two should be selling some of these photos- they are wonderful!
I like them all- they would look great in a kitchen.
Can't wait til you come out!

Beautiful photos -- tell Gerry 'yours is just as good - lol

The pears are wonderful -- do you handbuild those and are they hollowed-out?

Post a photo of your work in the Lark book. -- Congrats on that :))
