My plate, 2017 on the left. Peter Voulkos’, 1956, on the right. Go figure.

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.

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.

These two matching (more or less…) pourers look like milk and will handle milk or other liquids just fine. I really worked on shaping the spout on the pot. Usually I have attached one.

Fourteen and twenty dollars respectively.

This a big, heavy bowl taking up all the space on the table right now.  It made me think of the ‘healthcare’ initiative dreamed up by the Republicans. That’s right — it’s still empty.

In a matte white glaze and others brushed on. It’s twelve inches across. Seventy-five dollars.

This is “earth print bowl” because it looks as if it could be a weather map of the whole world at one time, including the molten core. It has multiple glazes on an altered surface.
