As a maker, I have a great appreciation for the arts, and using handmade pottery brings me a lot of joy.
Most of my collection are pots that I have made; especially since my husband requests to keep pots from various firings.
Otherwise, I buy pots from people that I know and admire. For example, these oval plates made by Mary Bowron. She was a wood fire potter in Maryland that I look up to. I loved her spunk and personality, and her talent as an artist. (Ps. I'm from Maryland)
