Flower Arrangement

My friend has arranged these magnolia flowers in one of my boats and called it "Boat in the Wind". The boat was made with a dark clay and has fired to a reddish purple which is ideal with these flowers. It is so nice to see our work used for the purpose for which it was intended and not just left sitting on a shelf. Harry Davis said that "He didn't make pots for museums, he made pots to be used". Our pieces were never complete until they were arranged.

  1. I've just been reading about Michael Cardew and he always wanted his pots to be used.
