Coffee Break vol. #5

Here's a little fluted cup by Michael Simon. Michael gave this pot to my friend Sam when he was visiting Ga a few years ago. I had planned on going down with Sam and Hayne Bayless for a visit with Michael, but was home recovering from my table saw 'incident'. Michael sent this sweet little cup back with the guys and I have enjoyed it ever since. I visited with Michael and his wife, Susan Roberts last spring on my trip to Athens, GA. Michael was doing great and we looked over some of his pots in his house and he showed me his new studio where he hopes to make pots. It will be wonderful to see more pots from Michael when that time comes.
