perfect and not so much

 ...and not so perfect.
I have several great pieces of pottery in my collection.  I think all but one of was purchased in thrift stores or at garage sales.  Still my eye is drawn to imperfect and strange bits of pottery such as these three.  I'm sure some of them were art projects of junior high students, but that doesn't diminish my fascination with them.  I discovered the heart-shaped one at a thrift store last week.  It sent me digging for the other two pieces AND a place to display all of them.


  1. I love that heart piece, color and subject matter, as I love blue and I love hearts. :-)

    You got some nice pieces there.


  2. I'm with you, regarding pottery, Rebecca. Just love it. You have some nice pieces! Susan

  3. I love your eclectic collection of pottery~ How wonderful that you have this treasure of cast of pieces. There is much beauty in them ~Thanks for sharing ~Love Heather

  4. Oops I meant to say cast off pieces~ sorry for the typo :) ~Love Heather

  5. I am a pottery collector too and I love your pieces! The colors are so muted and pretty! It is beautiful in all of it's imperfections too,

  6. There is something so appealing about hand thrown pottery, like the person who made it is expressed there somehow. I think the colors of the glazes in you collection would attract me immediately.


  7. Reminds me of the words of the old hymn....

    Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
    Thou art the Potter; I am the clay.
    Mold me and make me After Thy will,
    While I am waiting, Yielded and still.

    Your pottery is beautiful!!!
