WOW – Summer has arrived, and I’ve not posted in a while.
My apologies! My husband was out of town (San Francisco) for several weeks. I stayed home (silly me) and became overly involved in a few home-remodeling projects (actually, home AND studio remodeling). I became so involved/focused, I totally quit cooking!! Consequently, I’ve not had anything yummy to share here on my Blog.
I guess I took an unexpected break. Yes, I made plenty of new pots, and bowls, and more; but I truly took a break from foodie (and photo) endeavors. But husband has returned, and I’m here posting again….
And to make up for my absence, I’m offering the first of three Summer Give-Aways (several pieces from my collection)!
Summer Give-Away #1:
For the month of June (it is still June), I’m offering a lovely (REALLY lovely) Vase made my Minnesota Artist, Jan Bilek! Jan is right here in the Twin Cities; she worked in porcelain, she made exquisite vases and vessels (see below); she won a number of awards, was featured in Ceramics Monthly. She has, however, moved from clay to glass.
I have several of Jan’s pieces; her work has a very fluid, glass-like quality. For this Give-Away I am offering this small Turquoise Vase with intriguing, uneven Rim — Lovely.
