Lush Spring

New works in bisque stage for basket and glazed pots.
I had a really good firing and took these images at the studio. The weather has been wonderful the last couple of days. I forget how lush the spring colors are after the winter. It's like putting on 3-D glasses and everything just leaps out at you with it's intensity and closeness. The irises in my front bed are in royal purple abundance and the grass is a rich shade of blue green thickness. I plucked some of the irises to take with me to the gallery yesterday because they were so striking. Next will come the big-headed peonies that have such a subtle smell. Food and flowers remind me of the purpose of being a potter--making things to put these other wonderful things in!
