Old Yeller



This e-ware pot by the late David Taylor of Nova Scotia was bought by Sheila some 25 years ago on a trip out to the Maritimes. We had a wonderful dinner with beers at David's home and studio on the La Harve River. We enjoyed the company of he and his wife very much. This pot has sat in a cupboard for all that time as it didn't really fit in with our wood fire aesthetic. Our new home with it's warm yellers seem to show this pot off nicely.  A favourite corner of the living room has our David Fleming Windsor chair,  an old Nova Scotia batter bowl, a wood block print from the Hatch Print Shop in Nashville and Mr. Wiggley Legs by folk artist Jeremy Hayes.  This house seems to demand colour.  Perhaps our work is headed that way.
