An added feature of the Garden Tour on Sunday was the 'marketplace' at one of the homes. I am always drawn to pottery at any craft show. I love pottery and hope someday to take a pottery class. I know very little about the process of making pottery but it seems to me that the taking of EARTH and the shaping and 'burning' of it to create a thing of beauty and function is nothing short of amazing.
Paul Zikmanis of Mystic Bottle Pottery was showing his creations and I asked him if I could photograph them.
I'm not sure what kind of pots these are but the colors and glazes are incredible!
What a wonderful way to serve your favorite olive oil.
I think my son in law The Marine would like these to hold his wine bottles during a dinner party. I might use one as a coaster for my morning coffee.
The Professor really liked these mixing/serving bowls. So did I!
Can you imagine mixing chocolate chip cookie dough in one? And putting your best bread recipe to rise in another? And serving a fabulous green salad in the biggest bowl? Oh! you could use the smallest bowl for the dressing!
If blue isn't your color, they come in green and brown, too.
