I dig pottery pieces. The potters I know make very artistic work. They play with colors and patterns and textures. I usually buy small bowls that are experimental work and soap dishes. The soap dishes are so much more though; they can be used for spoon rests too. Here are a couple I just bought. These are by Tom Wintczak from Bee Tree Pottery in Indiana.
The back is pretty cool too.
And the back…
I love Tom’s work!
And for an update on potato chip scarves…here is a new one I just finished in Sensations Angel Hair yarn. It is 22% wool, 50% acrylic, and 28% nylon. It is soft and a bit fuzzy, fun and warm to wear.
Arts in Harmony is over for another year. It was held inside this time due to the threat of thunderstorms. And I think it worked out pretty well. There were lots of artists and artisans there, lots of variety of wonderful work. It wasn’t wildly profitable to me as far as money is concerned, but it wasn’t wildly UN-profitable either! I added 9 new names to my mailing list for the studio tour. I added to my collection of small pieces of pottery…for some reason I’m into bowls.
Here’s a booth across from me…I don’t know who they were or where they are from, but I did enjoy their large pieces of yard art.
And here is friend Tom of Bee Tree Pottery with some of his most excellent pottery pieces.
I got a new “business card holder” from him. It perfectly matches my business cards and is a lovely little bowl.
And another one I couldn’t pass up…
Oh yeah, I sold 2 pairs of my felt bead earrings. Not a bad weekend at all.
