Thankful me

A dear friend gifted me this wonderful Michael Hunt Bandana Pottery mug while I was on the road.  Nice to have it home and pressed into service.

My collection continues to bring me joy.  I’ve just added a healthy handful of pots to the stacks and they make me so thankful to be a part of our clay world.

The studio is a bit creaky these days – here is a little investigation from the past couple days:

I also wanted to share this bit of a poem with you today:

How marvelous is the reality of the present moment!  Each leaf is a universe of taste, scent, and memories.  Each one is a unique world, both spiritual and temporal.  A single leaf encompasses the entire universe.  We tremble at this revelation that inspires great devotion.  We bow in front of the miracle of this manifistation.  We no longer dare neglect the smallest thing: leaf, stone, or fragrence.

from The Little Buffalo in Pursuit of the Sun

    Cool design on that cup. It looks like it may be one that Michael’s wife Naomi painted. They work together on many of the pots.

    I also like the blurry goldfish in the background!
