A Couple Christmas Gifts

I promised my mother I would send her some pottery for Christmas gifts. Here are just a couple of my barrel fired pieces. The one on the left is a vase form and on the right is a lidded tea caddy. These are two of my most favorite because of the beautiful markings, but so far all of my barrel fired pots have had beautiful markings.
These two pieces were on Display at Viterbo University for six months and then they kind of disappeared. I believe they were placed in an office for safe keeping and they stayed there for several more months. I was lucky enough to find them yesterday. And, Yes Mom I'm packing them up today and shipping them out to you tomorrow. Oh, in addition to being on display they were also featured in Viterbo's Touchstone 2008 magazine.

Hi Jeff, those two pieces are very beautiful, I'll bet your mom will love them, so glad you got them back. Now that it's winter here I am hoping to have a barrel firing here after the first of the year. Wish me luck.
