new worker

Look at the sweetness of this tiny little pot.
It is made by some sort of wasp.
It showed up on the back of our open closed sign a week or so ago.
Tiny sweet with great lines.
Now how do I get this guy to do production?

I took a workshop with Adrian Arleo once and she talked about how she watched these tiny birds build a nest with mud and she used the technique on her surface decoration. She did a demo of it and what a tedious process!
Nothing beats nature for design does it!

Good morning, maybe he only makes one of a kind pots and sells them for $1900 each, just like the sweetgrass baskets in Charleston - can you believe that kind of price?

What a cool little pot! Nature does the best designs!

Darn- we could have sold this! Mark broke it while showing it off!
It was so sweet- I am with you Hollis- who did this guy study under.
Gary! You should be scared of the south for the two legged creatures these no legged and winged ones are no problem.

I had one of those in the shop at Wild Rose before I opened it. I called it the first pot made in the shop and wanted to put a frame around it, but it fell before I could. I heard it was made by a potter wasp or mason wasp.
