Love them!  The design on the tan and white bowl is awesome.

I like Japanese marks on pottery but I want to come up with expressions that fit my experiences in the American west and hope to get better at it.

Gorgeous shapes, love the color in the glaze on that blue one.

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!

What are you going to put in them? Rocks?

Gotta' love your comment about "fitting" better back in the '70s. I think I still resemble that remark, too.

All jokes aside, those are incredibly nice bowls.

Thanks. Like most potters my friends and relatives get them and I like my style bowl as they feel good in my hand , not symmetrical feels more natural.These look symmetrical but they are not I always put a little of how I am feeling that day in them. In 1970 I worked big building construction in New Jersey right out of high school.Very hard dangerous work but I was paid $10 an hour straight time. Super dangerous jobs like emergency tear downs of multiple story glass kilns you were given time and a half for 12 hour days 7 days a week. You could make money that was meaningful and do a job that was expected to be done fast and perfectly.I loved it.These are things my kids can't relate to in their working world.
