An Interesting Commission
Jeff was commissioned to create three large and interesting pieces. They are Mediterranean looking pots that will only be bisque fired. The buyer wants them to have a sandy look to them. If I remember right, they are going into a sunroom in her home. She was inspired by a large Rebecca pitcher that we often put out in our flower garden in the summer. It looks like a relic with a big chunk missing from it, and is unglazed.
The large pitcher (26") is reminiscent of the Rebecca pitcher.
The coolest one is this "half buried" amphora! I would love to see photos of these pots when they are placed in their new setting. I can imagine them surrounded by lots of plant life.
