|Random, collage postcard|
I used to be a potter.
Eons ago, after ten years of teaching, we had a baby girl.
I became a stay at home mom. That was really hard.
I started doing ceramics in my garage ...
during nap-time and at night.
It grew into a small business, dubbed ... Superslop!
I had a sale twice a year. By invitation only.
Amazing to me now, but it worked.
After being in an art show at the LA Design Center,
I began to sell to a few decorators and two department stores.
Over the years I have lost some of the product line photos,
but have found the faces line to show here.
Primarily unglazed, high-fired stoneware ...
slabs and thrown shapes, some iron oxide & porcelain.
Decorators favored the wall planters.
The roping probably gives away the age?
I just played with the clay and the faces appeared.
Two of my favorites were Laurel and Hardy.
I gave Laurel to Emi & Eric this past year.
Hardy sold long ago. I wonder where he is?
A smile for Sunday ...
