Treasure from the kiln

I find it more than a bit funny that our kiln is sooo enormous, it holds so much stuff, it takes so much energy to fire, it can hold a million big pots, and my favorite is this tiny little scoop. I'll never be able to sell this little guy its to tiny for to sell for what it is worth and its worth to much to me to sell. Yet It means nothing at all to me if I keep it, for pottery is meant to be shared. The final step in my creative process is to hand over the ownership to someone else. Visual, tactile communication. Along with the scoop, I had many pots that I was more than pleased with the results. Here is a tiny sample.
