I took some of the pottery items I have collected over the years and photographed them, and put them in a collage. Some I have bought. Some have been gifts. I started this collection the first year I lived in Montana. I found a vase at a county fair, and loved it, and decided to start my own collection. Unfortunately one year, while living in Meridian, the shelf my pottery was on fell to the ground, and I lost some of my pieces. But they are still in a box in the basement....with the hopes of being made into a mosaic creation.
I love pottery. It is such a solid, earthy art medium. I have always wanted to learn how to do my own pottery pieces. Some day...some day. But for now, I get to enjoy and use pieces others have created.
