A Boston Romp

Here’s a few more pix from our recent romp through Boston’s pottery world.  It’s amazing to consider the panorama of styles and eras we managed to cover.  From contemporary interpretations of blue and white, sorry but no pix allowed in the show, to early American, redware, Westerwald stoneware, Imperial Chinese porcelain and pre-Columbian funerary stuff!  I tried to keep the pix shown here to show the range we saw.  Sorry for not getting all the title information for each shot.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Boston Field Trip Feb. 2013

Five of us from the Guild drove to Boston to see the Blue and White Show at the MFA, and attend the lecture given by Michelle Erickson and two curators at the Sackler Museum at Harvard. Afterwords, we had a bite  to eat at The Kabab Factory, recommended by Michael Cohen. It was great viewing, discussing, and sharing.

Here we are at the Sackler, waiting for the lecture to begin. Lots of interesting historical Chinese and Korean porcelain in this room.

This is a piece called “The Potter” that Steve and I discovered in the American Wing of the MFA

Don’t worry, we had this deity watching over us.
