New Acquisition


John Glick butter dish


Jeff brought this home from the NC Potter's Conference. John Glick was one of the presenters. We both really like Glick's work and have a few of his pots.

I am handling the Glick butter dish with great care.

I have been on a breaking spree lately. I have recently broken a bowl, sake cup, tumbler, martini glass, and just the other night TWO mugs fell out of the cabinet while I was putting some away. My track record with butter dishes is not good either. Right now I have resorted to using a Pfaltzgraf covered butter tub and of course that probably wouldn't break even if I tried.

I have declared that the breakage curse is now over... it's safe to take out your good dishes and invite me over for dinner.

  1. I love John flicks work, I worked with a girl in Durham that interned at his place and she could glaze like a mad woman, she learned so much from him. I like the butter dish choice!

  3. a fellow NH potter also did an internship with flick, I mean Glick (ha ha, couldn't resist). I have a little bowl that he made that looks exactly like Glick's glaze technique. I am happy to report that he now makes really cool tiles with clay and melted glass that look nothing like Glick's.

  6. beautiful dish, I tend to break things in spurts too, usually when I am rushing around trying to do too many things at once. I too am envious of all the pottery events in your state.
