These dark clay tumblers are just the thing for a double old-fashioned. Hand-thrown and then dinged up a bit, as we all feel now. Chocolate-toned Laguna stoneware with light hara glaze.

Set of four, one hundred and twenty dollars.

Small stoneware bowl full of beautiful wooden spoons. See it in person at the next sale, Sunday 6 May.

How did I forget to make a little bowl and cup for my newest junior nephew! He had to ask. He is a Year of the Snake customer.IMG_0823[1]

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.

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.

blue-ash-pour-1

The blue ash glaze (recipe from Briscoe) looks accidental and random, earthy.

But apart from the sky (often) and water (sometimes), why is there not so much blue in nature? The blue berry, blue bird, and blue butterfly are absolutely attention-getting.

Created for the recent District Clay open house. Each visitor picked a cup. First come, first served.
