Today I fell in love with three new pots and I wanted to share them with you. Enjoy!

The Perfect Fall Weekend

I fell head over heels in love with Larry’s pots! The textures and colors he creates through the glaze spoke to me and I was in seventh heaven as he talked about his pots, showed me some of his techniques and gave me some pointers on how to achieve similar results.
