Pottery & Gardening

April 10th, 2010 by Mary

I just completed a pottery course at Pottery Northwest. I’m working with some exciting new techniques. I’ve been interested in leaving part of the surface unglazed and letting the raw surface show through. It has a wonderful texture when fired.

Gardening has also been a focus. I’ve recently been working on turning my front parking strip into a potager garden. I’ve used espalier fruit trees to create an enclosure encircled by box-woods for formality. Next, I’ll be building a arbor for a climbing rose, which will highlight the entrance to the vegetable garden.
