Cross pollination

I love the shape of the moon jars from Korea. Those mini moons I made sat on the shelf staring at me all day long.  I tried to avoid their stare but when the blues came on CBC I got my dancin’ shoes on and made them rock and roll. I put thick slip on being careful to leave the bottom without slip to show off the great form.  I wanted there to be a landscape on the moon. I still don't believe it is made out of cheese. Then they sat and starred back at me again. I was tired and wanted to go to bed but the handles screamed out at me. I was dancin’ with happiness at the result of the handles but it occurred to me I had seen these pots before and they were European.  Yes, they reminded me of the Greek amphora’s of the 5th and 6th centuries. Aren't they a beautiful form?  What I like about the Korean moon jar vase is the shorter neck. So I think these vases of mine are a Korean who married a Greek and moved to North America and lived happily ever after.  No, they didn't open a restaurant serving sovalaki and kimchi. They opened a pottery. Everyone likes a happy ending.  Can you handle that?
