"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."

Kiln Firing 11/16/09

It is difficult to choose the best of the kiln. Sometimes all the pots look equally beautiful but the newest pieces will be the ones that make the top grade. That's because they are special to us for pleasing us with their success. It could be a new glaze, new glaze combination, a new form or just a perfect balance between form and glaze that captures our appreciation. Sometimes the artists' pick of the kiln really should be two pieces... a toss up! Well, that is the case tonight. I can't choose between these two. The bowl is a new shape Steve threw and large as well. It also has our new glaze on a geometric design....very handsome.

However, I have to show you this white lotus. It is gorgeous.

So there you have it ... two for one, so to speak....
We leave for Florida now and will catch up with you on our return.....
Have a good Thanksgiving. We are grateful for your support.
