purchased among other things as St Kates show this weekend. Simple =
thing, single glaze- no decoration at all. Straight forward simple =
glaze. iron speckled. It has a narrow base fits well in the saucer, =
holds enough coffee. Just right. Funny how simple it is and yet how much =
of something it has that is totally intangible=20

guess it gives me something to quest after. Maybe what i like about it =
most is that it is quiet, unassuming, humble. Must be like the guy who =
made it i think as i enjoy this Swanson treat. I wonder- is this an =

record with wonderful pieces of pottery i get into my mitts. Ususally =
they last a day or two. Then its back to my old rejects that are =
incredibly bullet proof. I swear they haunt me like bad pennies.=20
