Like most things I can't do, pottery of any sort fascinates me, and the unique items that Pearl of Fehu Stoneware creates are no exception. A Colorado-based artist, Pearl has been working with ceramics for most of her life. She made the move to pottery about 20 years ago, and her experience definitely shows in her work.
Pearl makes some functional pieces but really enjoys creating art pottery. The new pieces she's been designing with the crystals are her personal favorites: combining clay and stone feels very special to her. I think that comes through loud and clear--her pieces are beautiful!
Pearl is generously donating one of her buttons as a prize to a lucky reader. I've picked a few of my favorites here to show you. Now it's your turn: go visit Fehu Stoneware, pick out your favorite item, and post a comment here with the URL the item. Comments will be accepted until midnight (Eastern U.S. time), Thursday, July 10, 2008. On Friday I'll use that handy randomizer.org thingie to generate a winning number, and the comment that corresponds to the number will win their choice of one of Pearl's awesome buttons. Make sure to leave a link to your blog or an email address in your comment so that we can contact you if you win. Sorry, but comments without contact info will be disqualified.
