friday field trip (from the sketchbook).


berkeley, california

yixing teapots are so beautiful in their simplicity and functionality. my sister, who lived in china for a number of years, has a huge collection of them. did you know that traditionally, some Chinese would pour the tea from the spout directly into their mouths ? i love that visual.

though i fully intended to start my hiatus this year, i have been immersed in the studio working on collaborations with diva, jess, and terrain. i’ve never collaborated before, as i am the proverbial lone potter, but i am finding huge satisfaction in it. who knew ?

    I was about to ask you about your "hiatus" and what kind of beauty you were creating…. can we have a peek ?

    Who could turn down those collaborations! Three of my favorites … love the drawing. I have a 'little' collection when in China my hubby accidentally bought an entire display when he thought he was buying one!
