Local Lovelies – Pottery
This is my very favorite teapot which I bought about 4 years ago. It’s nice and big and makes a lot of tea at one time, so it’s great when I have a bunch of people over. The spout got broken about six months ago (don’t even ask), but I still love it.
This cup and its mate were another one of yesterday’s finds. I’ve been gradually replacing my cheap stoneware mugs with beautiful clay cups. I like having a varied collection instead of a matching set, that way people (and I) can choose the perfect one to suit their taste and/or mood. The perfect mug is all about feel for me. It has to have a nice curved bottom that I can cup in my hands (oh behave!).
I love the colour and pattern of this pasta bowl. I’ve seriously considered asking the woman who made it if she can make me some other things to match (a teapot maybe?). On the other hand, it might not be so precious if I had more than one thing in that style.
That’s more or less my pottery collection. There are a few others that I didn’t show that you’ll see scattered in previous posts. I love the variety and personality that comes through in these one-of-a-kind creations, it’s something that’s totally lacking in mass produced goods. There’s a little bit of the artist in each one.
Do you have a collection that you can’t resist adding to?
