-Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums (via budddha)
bet jack didn’t know he was talking about pottery.
back on new year’s day I tried smokefiring a bisquefired pot in my fireplace. it worked so well that I refired a few others that I had barrel fired last fall with poor results. these turned out fine enough that I’ll try it again sometime.
I needed another plant pot so I made this one at the studio. the bottom part is thrown and the top part is a slab. coiled rim and handles. white slip and patches of several different glazes,
The rhododendrons are in full bloom, and the butterflies and bees are making the most of it.
My earliest human memory is watching my dad watching me through the glass of the maternity ward nursery. There are those who will dispute this is possible, but I know what I know.
