PotterLove: John Calver

PotterLove: John Calver
As I’m (im)PATIENTLY waiting for my kiln to cool enough for unloading, I’m wishing and hoping and wishing and praying that my pottery will look a bit like the pottery created by John Calver on the cover of Ceramics Monthly in 2000.
I’m striving to create glazes that speak to me as these do….
John Calver’s Pottery
John’s pottery has all the qualities that I strive to achieve in my work:  great glazes, interesting shapes/designs, and beautiful works of functional art!

There is lots of information on John Calver
and demonstrations of his work at the West Forest Potters Guild website.
Stay tuned for the results of my kiln opening!
