Glazed Vase (Photo)

One of the few novice pieces of pottery that are a keep sake. Others seem way too beginner style, when I first began learning how to make pottery at UCSD crafts center. I do remember glazing being the most fun part. The surprising element about it was one could only imagine how the glazes would come out of the firing kiln. In their raw state they ook like diluted clay slurries.

This miniature of a red and black pot reminds me of the rich earthern pottery ware from a famous gallery of Native American pottery in Santa Fe. Of course there is reason why they call it a gallery, each piece is exorbitantly priced, and rightly so. But Andrea Fisher Pottery is a must see gallery if you ever pay a visit to Santa Fe, even if you have no intentions of buying any pottery.
