Sulphur Bluff, Texas, USA



I was looking through an old portfolio today and this storage jar caught my attention.

I realized I made it almost 3 years ago and I can't remember what I drew on the other side, all I got to remember it by is the upright gorilla, which for one reason or another I deemed the front. I sold it not long after this photo was taken, so I didn't get very long to live with it.

I like the proportions of this pot: the skinny foot, the inflated belly, the quiet lid and knob. The black engobe stripes and the flashing from the soda vapors came out pretty muted, but to me somehow everything works.

I think it is good to revisit work you have done to reflect. It helps as you go forward.
