Salt in a wound

Last week the students salted some of my jugs. I brought one home and gave them 5 to sell at our Spring Mug and Bowl to raise money for the Clay Club. The Clay Club pays for guest artists, helps with trips to NCECA, bursaries and an assortment of good things.

The salted jug made me lust for my youth and the wood and salt firings I did for some 33 years. The pots look stronger and more confident. I hope I get over these e-ware jitters and start getting the bones back in the ware.

This is a very beautiful piece, but I truly love where you are going with the color. It is so fresh and new and great to look at. I smile every time you post a photo. Makes me wish I made colorful earthenware :)

HI DR T.,

THINK OF MICHAEL CARDEW AND MICK CASSON. TWO WONDERFUL POTTERS WHO WERE EQUALLY FLUENT WITH SEVERAL METHODS OF CERAMIC EXPRESSION. YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH YOUR BLUE AND BROWN PERIODS, NOW YOU ARE INTO YOUR FAUVEIST PERIOD. GOFORIT!! RH (GRASS)
