|My new mug from the Potters' Guild (center), along with some others with similar glazes. The mug on the|
far right is made by the same artist as the new one next to it.
|Beautifully decorated serving platter from the Potters' Guild sale. This platter is around 10" in diameter.|
|A small glass knife/spreader, a gift from Evelyn. With some Trader Joe's patè.|
|New item from Trader Joe's: brined caperberries. Nicely flavored!|
|Another new food item, which I received as a gift: a 1.5 oz. package of duck fat,|
which is shown melting in the pot. Inset: the package that it came in.
It was quite delicious and I would buy it again if I found it.
|A mushroom brush -- somehow I've always wanted one.|
I haven't had any mushrooms since I bought it, so I
don't know yet if it's as useful as I've expected.
|My best to everyone for the coming year!|
Note: About the Ann Arbor Potters' Guild from their website: "The Potters Guild is a cooperative non-profit organization comprising over fifty members who share the responsibility and administration of the studio. The range of work includes functional pottery, sculpture, tile work, and wearable art. Firing techniques include low fire oxidation, raku, smoke firing, as well as high fire reduction. As individual artists, we display our work in galleries, locally, throughout Michigan, and across the United States. The Guild holds two sales per year at the studio (in the spring - late April or early May and early December) and has also participated in the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair since it began in 1959."
