Dinner With A Potter

Please excuse the poor quality of this photo, it was taken with my iPod which doesn't have a flash.  I could have gone and found my camera but I wanted to get to the soup before it got cold and the beer before it got warm.  
Being a potter for me also means having pottery from many other potters to use at meals and other times.  When I picked out this bowl and stein I wasn't thinking about how Michael Kline (the maker of the bowl) and Kyle Carpenter (the maker of the stein) are friends who sometimes share kiln space.  Who knows, this may not be the first time these pots were together, I know it won't be the last. 

Other Stuff:
Michael Kline Pottery 
Kyle Carpenter 


  1. I think other people are always amazed at potters having many pots from other potters. Every time my mom has dinner with us she asks if I made the pieces she's using and I mostly say "no" (because my stuff rarely makes it into our cupboard unless it's defective in some way) and she always thinks I'm joking.

    Awesome looking stein and bowl. Hope the soup was yummy too.

    Have a great holiday.

  2. Sue - that's exactly how things are here. I keep the seconds that I really like but most everything else is made by another potter. People have stopped saying "Lori, that pot is beautiful!" because they are tired of hearing "Yes, it is, it was made by..." when they are trying to give me a complement.
    You have a great holiday too.
