Collaborations for Celebration

The Celebration of Seagrove Potters show is next weekend. Each year at the Friday night Gala Preview Party, there is a live auction of special collaborative pots and sculptures. Jeff and I have been collaborating on a couple of pieces with our friend Phil Pollet of Old Gap Pottery.

Phil created a large slab built square bowl and stamped his design in the center. He delivered it to our studio and Jeff applied white slip.

When the slip set up, I carved ginkgo leaves onto the rim. 

We all signed the back. One piece was lost in the bisque so we were glad that we made two! Jeff sprayed the bowl with ash glaze and we fired it in our gas kiln.

We are all really happy with the finished piece. Almost hate to donate it! You never know what price it will bring at an auction.

  1. That is a beautiful piece! Well done, all of you.

  2. Auctions are great to support the arts...prices can be double and triple what the commercial market can offer...and this is one piece that is sure to bring lots of pottery support!
