My new enthusiasm about aptware, outlined in this post, serves as a reminder of my pottery problem. What I mean to say is, I have an addiction. To pottery.
Let's break it down, shall we?
I adore this collection of small confit jars. They are not easy to come by, and I'm so thankful I didn't pass them up all those years ago on a trip to Lake Oswego, OR to visit my bestie Sarah Waters. I was so taken with the little guys, I bought all 5 of them. No regrets!
That little bowl on the right was made by my son, Brookes. I featured some of his pottery in this post a couple years ago.
Most recently, I have gathered most of my green pots and have them displayed as a collection…
I love the collection together. I'll admit, I'm not sure I would have had the confidence to try this on my own. I was inspired by a saved magazine image featuring a Dan Carithers designed room ~ a charming family room featuring a glass top coffee table with a large collection of blue Newcomb pottery. I've had this image saved for years and to me, it's still smart and polished.
I don't often need the back-up support or the approval of others, but in this case, with this somewhat of a bold statement, it helps to have Dan Carithers behind my design attempt. His impeccable taste still shines.
