At the Art Institute

This is a pot I saw at the Art Institute in Chicago, 
It is quite large, about 20 inches high, by a contemporary Korean potter, I think.  Sorry I didn't take a photo of the information card.
Also, this is an an American Indian pot with a woven pattern decoration, 

It too was quite large.  
Both pots are very graceful, and have nice "lift" from their bases, 


I have been so slow in making new work, 
These are some small slab plates that I started in September and glazed in December.  
I left spaces to put flower decals, so I hope to do that in the next few weeks,
These are some mugs I made at the same time.  The front one is handbuilt, the others are thrown.
These lovely dishes were made by my son and his girlfriend in September when Lisa ( at the Clay Spot in Savannah) gave them an introduction to throwing!  She is such a good teacher!  
The colors all coordinate so well!  And the gorgeous textile was a Christmas gift from Dierdre.  It is an Indian cloth covered in rows of stitching!
