It's Friday here in NC, but it must be Thursday somewhere, right? Here is a series of spherical pots(?) from 2010.

A finished spheroid. This one is currently in the Union University show. 

[and what would a blog post about spheres be without tipping my pottery bloggery millenary towards the sphere that inspired me so many years ago as a young artiste in Knoxville, TN?]

Come on in, this is where you'll find me for the next 3 weeks. I might take some breaks to watch the girls while they ride their bikes up and down Snow Creek Rd, but it's pedal-to-the-metal time for this potter. Sorry, not much time to explain. But I'll try to keep in touch.
