When I was at Lark and Key this week I picked up a little gift for myself. I guessed three different potters before Sandy told me who made this. Can you guess who the potter is?
I don't buy pottery because of who the potter is like some folks around here, I buy what I like, what speaks to me. This tray spoke to me. Of course almost everything Lark and Key has in the gallery speaks to me, what a beautiful place.
Guess where? I am getting photos everyday from Jamphel. These monks are seeing more of the United States than some of us who live here! In true mom style, I asked where his coat was. Then last night while Gerry was shooting a basketball game he emailed and said he told Jamphel he needed a coat on! Now we wish we had paid more attention to what they had and maybe gotten him a coat. Those thin robes are not suitable for this weather!
I managed to work upstairs on some jewelry yesterday. It felt good to be creating something. Still too cold for my pottery studio but my little upstairs loom and jewelry space is cozy and warm. Having the monks here seems to have informed my work. I was adding little buddha heads and other things that made the necklaces feel very spiritual in nature.
Perhaps these will be prayer necklaces of some sort, a nod to rosaries and malas.....
