This adorable little weed vase... which prompted a quick walk around my yard and the golf course next door for a few weeds, etc...
Buttercups are oddly pleasing... for a weed!
And this little bitty pitcher, it's got little dents on each side for perfect pouring. Oh, it pleases me!
I've thought it might be nice to have a spoon rest for years. Order appeals to me but I never found one that was remotely aesthetically pleasing until I saw this one:
And it is perfect for holding my favorite stirring spoons!
So these three pieces were my impulse purchase a while back.
Imagine my delight when I wandered into a booth at "Art in the Park" and found the same work... and thus... the artist her fine self! Tickle me PINK!
That's how this little wall vase came to be mine... (perfect home for small measuring spoons!
And this one is perfect for my nutmeg grater! I told Mary I love pottery but don't collect much because many potters work in such somber earthy colors. She laughed and said if something comes out of her kiln in a somber color it's a mistake! Is it any wonder I kept shopping?!
A small mixing bowl with two pour spouts... and a little salsa bowl (which is actually sporting some blueberries at the moment.)
Speaking of color, a friend of mine wrote this little blurb about me:
Carmen Rose, known for her passion for color, whether in glass painting and fusing, silk scarf dyeing, or art quilts, is going to splash OASIS gallery with a special exhibit. She has worked in many media, but an eye for color is her signature.It's not the first time I've been billed as having some sort of a special relationship with color, I guess sometimes I forget that not everyone loves color like I do. I think that's why the work of potter Mary Tuttle delights me so! Mary doesn't have a website, facebook page or even a twitter account... she's a phone person. (I hate phones!) She spends her time in the studio. And though I'd love to be able to go somewhere and look at photos of her work or drop her an email to say that it was nice to meet her... I think she's got her priorities right. It's good to be reminded that the studio is still the place where art happens. And who wouldn't want to play in the dirt for a living?!
(And happy stumbling across cool artsy type people)
