Exhausted!! I’ve literally gone through two weekends of Art/Pottery Tours and I’m a bit tired!!
First, my own Lake Minnetonka Tour — Then this past weekend, I was helping out with the St. Croix Pottery Tour.
It was so much fun to mix and mingle with sooooooo many people over two separate weekends — But I confess, I’m now exhausted. So, I need a recovery day — I’m having fun reviewing the wonderful pieces I purchased from some of the wonderful potters!!
And I’m sharing a few (smaller) pieces here on my Blog….
Dick Cooter — Small Pitcher
Dick is from the North Shore (Lake Superior) of Minnesota. He had so many wonderful wood-fired pieces, large and small! I’m sharing a small, smooshy wood fired pitcher — Perfect for Maple Syrup, or springtime flowers!
Delores Fortuna — Happy Mugs
Delores lives in Galena (historic small town) Illinois. She works in porcelain to create enticing, refreshing functional work. Deconstructing, then re-constructing with a light geometric statement. I’m sharing several mugs (tall and short) that I already LOVE for my morning coffee.
Guillermo Cuellar — Small Shino Bakers
Guillermo’s Studio is one of the ‘Host’ Sites for the Tour; he lives on a bluff above the St. Croix River. He always has wonderful work available on the Tour. I found two small oval-shaped baking bowls (or are they ice cream bowls?). I love the way the Shino Glaze accentuates the oval form. I can’t wait to prepare a Cheesey Baked Egg in these. I guarantee — You will see these again in a later post!!
Jim Lorio – Small Tumbler
Jim was a wonderful addition to the Tour; from Boulder, Colorado! He had a range of work — From rustic wood fired pieces, to quiet, silky porcelain plates and bowls. I’m sharing a small Tumbler with a delightful ash-glaze application. Perfect for wine and cheese (and berries)!
Recovering and celebrating!! The Tours are over — But I will certainly be posting about MORE New Pots in the near future!!
