A Partridge in a Pear Tree

‘Tis the season to sing all of our favorite carols, play the seasonal tunes and make objects out of clay that remind us of both.  OK, maybe that’s just me, but if you can’t relate, maybe cookie baking is a good analogy.   I’d like to share with you a storage jar I made, titled, “A Partridge in a Pear Tree”.   The jar was selected by the editors of Early American Life Magazine to be photographed in the Christmas 2012 issue.  I, to say the least, was quite honored.

It came to me afterwards, that it would be very interesting and challenging for me to create a piece every year using the song as an inspiration.

So, yep, you guessed it.  For 2013 I am working on  a Two Turtle Doves piece.


I figure a piece like this a year for the next 11 years will be a nice legacy to my pottery.   And, can’t you just wait to see the last piece!!??       



Hope you follow along with me on this journey.  My goal will be for  you to see some other interesting pieces too!


           Merry Christmas!! and a Happy Holiday Season to All!!
