The Book! The Book!

A new Book — In the Potter’s Kitchen:

I’ve just been included in a new Book – In the Potter’s Kitchen.  By Sumi Von Dassow, a Potter in Colorado.  Actually, it’s some of my Pottery PHOTOS that have been included in a Book.  Said photos shot by Photo-Guy Husband (Robert) — He’s rather tickled.

Nearly two years ago, Sumi contacted me – She indicated she was putting a book together and asked permission to use several photos (and recipes) from my Blog.  Several Maasha Pots, a Cake-Stand by Steve Rolf, a stunning Salad Bowl by Julie Timm.  We all had to sign consent forms – And now, after much intense coordinating and editing by Sumi, the Book is out, available, published!!  Congratulations, Sumi — We all think it’s a bit exciting!


I even had a chance to have lunch with Sumi a few weeks ago, when she was in the Twin Cities for a Workshop.  She included sooooo much detail in the Book (and so many fine Potters).  Categorizing various ‘types’ of pots that we use in the kitchen, including quite a few Recipes, including step-by-step instructions on MAKING THE POTS.  Amazing effort — Wow!

Check the book out here –  In fact, if you have a Foodie/Potter in your life, this book might make a great Holiday Gift.

I’m sharing the Photos she chose, and a few extras, with additional pots by both Julie and Steve….

  1. I’m thrilled for both you and Bob. I think this book needs to be on my cook book stand in my kitchen near the very casserole dish pictured in the book and some of your other much loved art work. And I will gift one to my niece Chris.
    Very nice!
