These pots are included in the Green Line Artists show in Petworth on Sunday.

In combination. These pots stack well on each other, and the lids fit all. Red interior, neutral glaze exterior, on dark brown clay body.

The DC metro, that is. Potters and artists who share the green line offer up work for our spring sale.

but where I see “whiskey sipper,” you may see:

ramekin, tea-bag holder, seed-starter, creamer, egg cup, salt cellar, olive pit pit, tooth fairy beaker, earring catcher, aspirin dispenser, espresso cup, guitar pick holder, change collector, key receptacle, totem…

Twelve to eighteen dollars. Some are wood-fire products, and that’s special.

or two, or maybe three. Instead of a vase, you need this little plant holder. There may be a better name; I don’t know it. I know the little spiky think is called a florist’s ‘frog.’

I have a few of them for around 20 dollars each.
