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.

First Viewing

Michael Kline


We had a nice crowd for the first viewing of PBS's Craft in America over at Penland tonight and afterwards Alex Matisse and I unbricked the door of my kiln to get the first view of the pots in Numero 32! It looked pretty good to me so far. I was too tired to unload the kiln so I will wait till morning. Here are a few snapshots of the stack.
