Back from Vacation!!
Husband and I have just returned from two weeks in the gorgeous/spectacular CANADIAN ROCKIES – The Selkirks in British Columbia and Banff National Park in Alberta. An awesome trip — Mostly camping, many mountain hikes, wonderful discoveries.
The Selkirks are a range of mountains with several huge (huge), long lakes – Fjords really. We had to cross several lakes by ferry boat to arrive at the charming (and very remote) village of Kaslo. We found a delightful cottage right on Kootenay Lake and enjoyed our own private beach for several days – Awesome, beautiful, stunning!!
I also discovered a ceramic artist in the area – Sarah Lawless. I really liked her work – Very unique, minimalist forms; porcelain with smooth, matte glazes.
Her forms and her soft glazes suggest smooth, perfectly eroded rocks — Reflective of the beautiful, natural area she’s living in. I enjoyed meeting her and I had no problem choosing several pieces to bring home and add to my collection.
Do check out her Web Site: www.SarahLawless.com
