Waiting to be glazed.
Little turquoise pot next to the pot that was supposed to be the same color!
Celadon glaze on the inside.
So tiny, but I like this one a lot.
It's interesting, this ceramics revival. Sort of like the knitting revival that occurred about a decade ago. I wonder what the next craft trend will be. I think it all has to do with technology fatigue...wanting to get away (for a little bit at least) from our computers and phones and feel something tactile and tangible. To step into the role of maker, instead of our usual role of consumer.
"Consumer" may be an impossible role to break--even though I am making pottery, textiles, clothing- I still have to buy my materials, and pay for my pottery class, pay my seamstress for her hard work.
Computer technology is so seamlessly integrated into our culture. I think it's funny that I still want to take digital photos of my pottery and show you these images via blogging & the internet!
Maybe it's all just nostalgia. My house was filled with ceramics, textiles (macrame!) growing up in the 70's...
