~ pottery

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.

I too have loved confit pots. I didn't realize they came in colors other than the yellow. Thanks for sharing

I sees nothing wrong with a pottery obsession. Mine is for Greek pottery that I have collected over the years. Plus other sets and stuff from past generations of my family. Love, love, love it! Your home is elegant, warm and well curated. I wait always for the next installment of your blog. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
