Ceramics for the holiday

 

Gunnel Schmidt piece on my mantel

Friday morning my good friend, Laurel, and I braved the cold and attended the Ceramics sale at Harvard. Laurel's mom is a potter who was one of the artists to show her work, and I am always astounded at the beautiful things that she creates. I did manage to attend this function sans children (as I can easily say that that would have been a disaster)!  It was so nice to walk around in the peace and quiet and take in all the beautiful art, I really had to take four or five looks as my brain could not process it all in one take.  I bought some lovely little bowls for Tucker's teachers, and of course I couldn't resist to get some things for myself! I found a beautiful piece by Gunnel Schmidt that is now prominently displayed on my living-room mantel.  I also fell in love with some wonderfully whimsical pieces by Christopher Adams, but alas they were out of my price range and I really would need to find the exact spot to hang one before I can invest!  Maybe next year... check out the other amazing pieces and info about their next sale at OFA Harvard Ceramics website, it is not to be missed.
