The Avant-Garde of the Cabinet

In lieu of showing work that would be happening in the atelier, since there isn't any, here is another in the ongoing documentary of the domestic scene here at the "Biltless" estate. I just emptied the dishwasher and took notice of the lineup of dishes and it was a particularly pleasing sight with that certain "je ne sais quoi". For those of you who may be stumbling upon this blog by some sort of random google search, this is actually some very serious business for a potter. Think of it as the Nielson ratings for dishes. I won't mention any names but there is a pecking order. If you've ever been on the bottom of a human pyramid you know what those sad bowls and plates at the bottom of the stack are feeling now.


  1. I love it. Those poor sad plates at the bottom. Take pity, give them a chance!
    Lovely picture of potters domesticity.

  2. Yea I'm on top! At least for now. Ha.
    (Lillian, keep asking to use my bowl so it doesn't make it to the bottom. We'll pay ya in pb&j's)

    I love pics like this. Very fun to see.

    Great shots of the work from Penland too.

  3. Quite a mix you've got there! Wouldn't it be fun to have all the potters post pictures of their cabinets.
