Time for another Quiz of the Month!
WHO is the Artist? WHAT is the Item?
Actually — I realize that I forgot a Quiz last month. That’s an OOOOPS for me! But here we go for this month….
Who is the Artist: A simple, cylindrical vessel. Wood fired, with simple but pleasant glaze design. Can you guess — WHO is the Artist?? Hint: A Colorado Artist.
What is the Item: Several ‘sticks’ (rather like straws) that fit nicely in the vessel. Can you guess — WHAT is the Item?? Hint: Tasty sweet.
First, the Artist: The Artist is Peter Karner — A wood fire artist in Colorado. His forms are somewhat contemporary, but his rich, intricate, geometric glaze treatments (along with the atmospheric firing) suggest ancient Persian or Islamic designs. Gorgeous!!
I think this larger Pedestal Bowl looks STUNNING — The geometric design in rich turquoise and the contrasting fruit. I am not usually a ‘turquoise’ girl — But this piece was so pleasantly earthy-but-contemporary, it fits perfectly in my life.
Here is a link to Peter’s Web Site: www.PeterKarnerPottery.net
Next, the Item: The ‘sticks’ are Honey Sticks. Convenient if you enjoy honey with a simple, relaxing cup of tea. Also, a fun way to drizzle honey over your breakfast cereal, or toast, or muffin.
The Honey Sticks are available from STASH — A Tea company in Portland, Oregon. When I attended NCECA several years ago in Portland, they were giving out free samples of a wonderful ‘White’ Tea. Here is Link — www.StashTea.com
Hope everyone enjoyed Quiz of the Month (in spite of my omission last month)!
