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.

Delivering the Pots

Every now and then you have to freshen the inventory. Pottery doesn’t go bad, it has no expiration date. You can find pottery that is as old as the hills...well, it’s made from the hills so I guess even the newest pots are as old as the hills. But, in the shops that sell my work I need to keep inventory fresh so periodically I need to bring new pots to them.  As much as I love visiting with the shop owners and telling them about the pottery, finding out about how they are doing, seeing what’s new in the store, and all that their is a paperwork issue that I don’t love. This makes me procrastinate, does anyone like making inventory sheets?

I did get my act and the pots together and made deliveries around Atlanta this week. If you go to any of the shops that carry my pots you’ll find some nice, fresh pottery just in time for Valentine’s Day.  And tell them that I sent you.

  1. wow, you have been busy, the only inventory sheets I have are for the galleries which require them and even those are a pain

    1. I do them for every gallery/store if only for my own records. Your memory may be better than mine, Linda.

  2. Few clients have art pottery in their home. When they do, it's always special and sparks conversation.


    1. It's so true about art pottery, you can have a conversation about the cup your drinking your coffee from as well as the vase on the mantle. Bringing art into a home is special.

  3. The business of art is a pain in the neck! I have been fortunate to work with galleries that keep very good records though. It helps when you are doing business with pros

    1. You're right Tracey, professionalism is very helpful and makes everyone want to work together.

    1. Right Michèle, but it's gotta be done.

  5. I love the way your pottery has been displayed.

    1. Thanks Caroline, the owner of Kaboodle does the displays in his store, he does a great job.
