(new pottery by Gary Rith)
You will remember our good friend Summer, who is an artist on the side, but first and foremost a research biologist who studies and lectures on her area of expertise, which happens to be what you and I might call "bugs". Talking with Summer is to enjoy a thrilling conversation featuring snakes, wasps, pottery, bees, food, beads, glass....
ANYWAY, a week or 2 ago, Summer is talking about Christmas and her father. Her father, you would not be surprised to learn, keeps bees. He is also a chef around the house....and, well, could I make a gravy boat for him? With bees on it????
I thought and thought and thought about it, and came up with this rather awesome item with bees all over it. It turned out so well, I need to make some honey pots and even mugs and bowls with bees, and this blue-green color scheme....
Spike, as you see below and have seen before, gets wicked excited about grocery bags......
Honey pots with bees: genius. I was going to suggest it, before I saw you already thought of it.
Sleep in heavenly peace, Spike.
You can't know how much I love this. or maybe you can?
I love the Bee's!!! Let me know when you make some mugs, cause I want ONE!!!!
just this very second made my first ever bee mug :) you're on the list SUZ!
Really beautiful pottery Gary. I love the depth of the glazes and the combination. Truly striking. The bees are really gorgeous, and wonderfully done.....Great Job! Love it!
You are correct of course! :)
Spike makes my life a happier place. And, please add me to the bee mug list! Gorgeous design.
The bees are the bee's knees!
What is it with cats and grocery bags?!
