Surface to Form

Michael Kline

One thing leads to another. After cutting the feet into these soon to be rabbit plates, I went back to the wheel to throw some shallow bowls and wanted to use something from the energetic combing in the edges of them and Voilá! (that's french for voila)

the following resulted. Form follows surface?

Monday's are reserved for the Antiques Road Show on PBS. We just saw this piece appraised at $5-7000. Look familiar faithful readers? Maybe message follows form. We'll have to ask Ellen if she was watching...Meanwhile here are a variety of the pig flasks, all with writing.

Now it's time for some after supper pottery. (remember its crunch week!) Cueing up the Jay Z.
On to the next one. See you in the a.m.

Reclaiming My Place

Michael Kline

Wow, has it been that long since I was standing at the wheel making pots? Yes I think it has been! After I finally cleared all of the remnants of various projects away from the wedging table and wheel area I actually remembered what I do best. Well, at least what I really get paid to do. As I stood at the wheel listening to Jay-Z telling me why he's the new king of New York, I realized the best reason to stand up while throwing is so you can get into a groove and get DOWN.
