yarn bowl common goods

Doesn’t every single knitter already have a “yarn bowl”? So there is no need to make more, right?

Photo lifted from Common Goods.

This shiny and matte belted vase is 13 inches tall.

I’m not sold on the “pop-up” term, but the Pottery Barn store in Bethesda (4750 Bethesda Avenue) kindly allows space for some local potters this weekend. Saturday 10 to 8, Sunday 10 to 6.

Hope to see you there.

The Voulkos show is at the Renwick through August.

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.

Set of three cups that stack in a satisfying way. Pinnell’s red glaze on the inside, shino glaze outside.

All three for fifty dollars.
