"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."
William Morris (1834-1896)

Studio Work before leaving for Sonnenberg Show

I received an order for a ginger at the Ann Arbor show in July so I'm trying to make two of them before leaving for the next art fair this weekend. We always make an extra one to cover the chance of one of them not making it through the drying/firing process. Here are some photos of the work in process starting with the source of real inspiration, ground ginger. Steve had thrown the two pots last week and we tightly enclosed them in plastic bags while we were away at the Garrison show. It is time to finish them up so they can dry slowly.
