Pottery = Joy

I have this fantasy.....I would love to have my cabinets full of hand thrown/built pottery of all kinds from a lot of different talented potters from everywhere. I really LOVE pottery!!

I "met" Ceci, the wonderful artist-potter whose shop Artsielady Five Cats Studio I am featuring this week, on our Boomers and Beyond Etsy Street Team. (which means we are past a certain age) Ceci does some very cool things with clay and has a special affinity for Raku and here lately using real fish as molds.

Ceci begins her bio saying... "My birthplace and upbringing stems from the island of Oahu in Hawaii and my heritage is a mixture of Filipino, Portuguese and Chinese. The islands provide a rich blend of cultures and ethnic background from which I take my philosophical artistic approach." You can see these wonderful influences in each beautiful piece of pottery.

When I browse through the ArtsieladyEtsy Shop the colors and swirls and textures of an array of beautiful glazes delight my eye's quest for color.

If you enjoy beautiful pottery too, you will love taking a look through Ceci's beautiful shop!!

Great blog Zuda. I love Ceci's work, she is so talented. I love your choices from her work, all of them but especially the leaf bowl, so pretty and calming and then the fire-red bowl...that one reminds me of hot lava....very stunning.

I have a weakness for pottery too :-)

I love the Raku Vase and the Red Swirl Bowl.

Zuda, thank you so much for including my pottery in your blog. I was going to say work but when you're having so much really can't be work now could it! Lovin' the red too!
