Sometimes it is amazing how people come together and form friendships. I feel that I have connected with so many of you through this blog. Who knew such a thing could happen??
Years ago, I met and became friends with a lady named Liz. We were both desperate for what Al Anon had to offer at the time, and we both found what we needed. Over the years, even though we live an hour apart, we have kept in touch.
What's funny to me, is that I have become good friends with Caren, a potter that Liz introduced me to, someone I actually see more often than Liz.
Just how things turn out, I guess.
Do you ever wonder what has happened to all those old friends and acquaintances that have come and gone throughout your life???
Anyway, Caren has a great studio, called Pizzazz Pottery
She is extraordinary. The work she does is off the scale. I don't say this just because I like her either. I am blown away by her talent.
She stopped by to talk about "wholesale" accounts, not that I am an expert or anything, but I do have my opinions. You knew that, right?
She had some great stuff in her car she wanted to show me, and now I want to show them to you.
Tell me this stuff is just not incredible.
You might notice in the picture below, that there is a huge crack on the left side of this. It cracked while it was being fired, something that she says never happens. But it did. The piece is still awesome, and seems sturdy enough, but it is flawed.
Caren also makes pottery for daily use, in addition to these gallery pieces. Go on over and check out her work. She is just over the Vermont line, a stone's throw from here.
I think we are planning a photo shoot.....my wovens, and her pottery. Won't that be fun????
Now if only I could get Kate over at Country Girl up here with her camera!!!!
