Breathe …is there anything more important?

Sale, Form vs. Function

Last week we had our annual winter pottery sale at North Idaho College.

I feel grateful to all those who directed the flow of money in my direction and vow to let that flow continue on to a place where it will do the most good for us all. After all, money is like water, best when it flows.

I enjoyed watching people shop. They looked at the pieces, picked them up, turned them upside-down to look at the bottoms. I had lots of different kinds of things for sale.

For Sale

I sold all my bottles, gave away a lot of my fridge magnets.

What I found interesting....Even though some pieces only hint at functionality, we stretched our imaginations to give them some function. I wonder why? With two dimensional art, all we need is to hang a it on the wall and appreciate it. With ceramics this hinting sends us into the mindset of almost needing a piece to have a function? Some things are just cool to look at; for example, the jars below.

Wonky Jars

Oh by the way, I didn't include these jars in the sale. I like the way they look as a group, so will be keeping them around.

  1. I love the whimsical Tibetan feel of this group of jars. Perhaps you will make more? Someday I would love to have one. You are amazing, Janine!

  2. Thank you Kathy. Since we seem to only have a couple weeks of summer weather this year, I need to get wild with the toenail polish.
