Simple Stoneware …Floral Friday

A couple of the things I like about stoneware art pottery are that the artisans’ individuality shows through and that it inspires me to express my own individuality. The raw, sturdy nature of this type of pottery looks and feels honest.

The small, bamboo-handled pitcher can be used for cream or condiments or it can be used for some violets. I like how the handle frames the little flowers. A Raku-glazed Foo dog stands watch.

The medium-blue wash over cobalt-blue glaze adds subtle complexity to the basic, wheel-turned cylinder vase. The glazes enhance the blue and white blossoms. A little wooden Mexican toy horse finishes the composition.

A solitary purple flower is at home in the domed bud vase. The enameled Japanese rice bowl with seashells adds eye-candy to the still-life.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Steve Jobs. “Don’t be trapped by dogma–which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.”
