For a cup of coffee?
Or maybe some tea? Who wouldn't be enticed when using this beautiful pottery made by the very talented Renee' Schwaller of Off the Wheel Pottery in Egg Harbor, up in Door County. I met Renee' a few years ago, when I was invited to participate in a show there, what an honor! And then last summer, I had my own show there, sharing space with Renee' in a wonderful converted barn, so much fun! If you get the opportunity to visit Door County this summer, put this shop on your list of places to go. If you can't get there, she'll gladly ship something to you that's caught your eye on her website or on facebook. I'm fortunate enough to own a few of her pieces, and have added to my little collection, the coffee cups from the top picture. It was actually a trade we made, her art for mine. But when I look at the quality of her work, and the detail, it makes me wonder if I got the better end of the deal! Whenever I look at art in a medium that I have no experience with and have never tried, I'm always in awe of what can result from 2 hands, learned skills, and a lot of creativity. Do all artists feel that way? Not that I don't have respect for artists in my own field and look at their art in awe, because I do,but at least I have a clue how (most of the time anyway!) how they did what they did. Anyway, I'll leave you with a couple more images images of Renee's work, incuding a vessel sink that I'd love to own. And hopefully will if we get the last of the addition touch ups done, the gardens done, a lot of clean up done, and then be able to do a little work in the bathroom-we'd better hurry up before it's gone!
