Ceramics And …Going To Lick The Windows!

The Hague’s “Parels” (Pearls) events cover multiple neighbourhoods on different weekends, and display creative talent in each. A few weeks ago I went to another one and in one home, four different people had their various hobbies and artistic pieces on show. This one was all about ceramics, something I know very little about. I tried once long ago to use a potters wheel, sadly my efforts to make a pot that was (a) round, or symmetrical in any form, or (b) would stand up, were for naught.  It’s harder than it looks and takes a good amount of practice to make something like a tall vase. 

My efforts may have been laughable but these pieces are beautiful… I tried my best to get a close up of the shell form decorating the inside of the first bowl, to be honest the photograph doesn’t do it justice. I like the one with the green glaze. but we are downsizing and clearing out at the moment as the house gets a makeover /renovation , and with a ton of household stuff already stacked high in boxes as we emptied rooms and Himself paints, he would have a fit if I bought stuff home at the moment. Still, at least as one of my favourite French saying goes I can: “faire du lèche vitrine” (going to lick the windows!). It’s a wonderful way of conveying the drooling after something that you shouldn’t or can’t reach… brilliant!
