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.

a selection of little salt cellars, with exotic spoons.

Small (well, big enough) salt cellar. Twenty dollars.

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.

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.

It’ll be right here.

It’s a “basket” because it has such a humongous (bamboo) handle, which I bought years ago, and moved around on my shelf about a thousand times. I finally made a pot to fit it.

Glazed in Malcolm’s shino with patches of other glazes brushed on.

Thirty-seven dollars.

Winter’s coming. You’re going to need nourishment.

I recommend a healthy food and maybe a new hobby. Make sauerkraut, or kimchi, or other fermented stuff. (Very little work on your part, may I say.)

These crocks include small weights inside, for adding to the crushing action that turns cabbage into kraut.

The prices are $45, $55, and $65 according to size and I have more.
