Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: art fair

Today was a lot sunnier than yesterday… and a LOT hotter…
thankfully we had a wonderful breeze blowing through all day.
It would have been unbearable without the breeze.

Special thanks again to all of my wonderful customers who stopped by to say hello!
Especially three of my students from this current session at Lillstreet Art Center.
Thanks to Laury, Linda and Tracy who shlepped all the way out to the ‘burbs…
each of which have been doing an incredible job in our Wheelthrowing Class.

So, sure I could show you some nice pottery shots… some pictures of my work.
Or, I could show you some of the beautiful flowers that graced my booth this weekend.
Including some purple Queen Anne’s Lace, orange alstromeria, lotus pods, green rosehips,
white tulips, fragrant stock and more! Plus some little glimpses of pottery!

My Textured Slab Vases never looked better than with one of my all-time favorite flowers…
kind of a strange plant with great colors, incredible textures and funky structure.
It’s called Kangaroo Paw – and it’s crazy cool!!!
