Kissed By The Flame

Some pots are quiet, they don’t speak of carving or imagery. This one didn’t even speak of glaze colors or designs. Sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to the quiet. That would probably have been a better name for this post, maybe it’s the name of the vase. With nothing but a spearmint liner glaze, this piece was placed in the soda kiln. It’s about 11 inches tall so it was put in the top with a sculpture and a few other tall pieces. The soda and the flame did the decoration.

The vase is still very quiet but I think it came out well. I’m pleased with the painting the soda and flame did.

Mushrooms of Penalnd

Probably because of the amount of rain in the woods around Penland huge variety of Mushrooms grow here.  Rumor has it that Lucy Morgan, the founder of Penland School of Crafts, used mushrooms as a table center piece for an important dinner.  I can only guess that the guests must have been enchanted by this creative setting.
While hiking I took some pictures to share with you.
Looks like Coral

Love the contrasts on this one

I call this a sunset mushroom

  1. I'm so envious of your time at Penland. Such a magical place!
    One year for Halloween, I had a party for Wes and her friends and I brought in mushrooms form the yard to add to my table setting. Some of the moms talked about me for quite a while!

  2. Tracey, you would love this place. I need to take some barn pictures for you.

  3. Beautiful - thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh I like that red one, so cool, I hope to get to Penland some day.
