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

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.
