Water & Clay

24 May

The lake is quiet

Spring thaw has removed the ice

hear the Loons calling.


Potters house fresh clay

twigs in new fired bottles

Of cobalt blue glaze

    Beautiful images! (I guess in the first one you mean ‘quiet’? Spell check will make these typos that change our meaning!)

    There is a quiet and purpose in this making a pot and it being filled with the goodness around it…
