The white pots were encouraging.  There is such a different challenge when the elements are stripped down to white slip over red clay.  I still maintain the instincts to tell a story inside this simple format.

At this level it’s more like one of Warhol’s 17 hour long films about not very much than Casablanca.  The point is that stuff happens even when attempting to control things from happening.  The single dot of exposed clay on a slipped mug wall is like a spot of spagetti sauce on a man’s white shirt.  The holder is left to imagine the circumstances.

And here is the pitcher I liked best:

It seems like that red table is informing my work more and more.
