i wish i made it…

michael-hunt2

I’ve been pulling images for the wish i made it… series from antiquity.

This one is a little different.  I took this shot myself back in 2oo5 outside of Michael Hunt’s studio – and quickly realized I had to have this pot.  It has been holding my dogfood for the past few years and performing admirably.

As I think about working big and making large covered jars – I can’t help but think back to our afternoon with Michael as he toured us thru his kiln, showroom and studio and treated us to a life changing Onggi demonstration:

Michael is one of the very best potters goin.   Check out his website and blog chronicling his recent travels in Korea with partner Naomi Dalglish.

    I agree, Michael Hunt is a rock star! I have one of his bowls that I absolutely love and “wish I made it”! I also wish I had gone to his studio while I was in the area, I got his bowl at the Crimson Laurel gallery which is a wonderful place. I really enjoyed the Korean blogging, so glad they did that for all of us.
