Pottery in Tampa

OK, here are pictures of pots in Tampa.

First, some movies on YouTube, which I've just discovered, and can't take credit for...but they show more NCECA views than what I saw!

Santa Fe Clay's 2011 La Mesa part 4

Of course, once you go there, you can find the other parts.  They are amaturish hand held videos of a zillion pots on display, mainly place settings.  Some are beautiful, so wade on through to find the ones you like!

My first pottery exhibit I visited was at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL.

Brian Ransom, Eckerd College, St. Petersburg, FL

Brian was one of the busy people at NCECA, but he did come for the opening of the Eckerd Exhibit...which was good because he's the pottery teacher at Eckerd. 

Here Brian is actually adjusting the amount of water in this musical pot, so that it could be "played" by shifting it from one side to another, after he re-installed it on it's stand.

Here my son, Tai, is playing one of Brian Ransom's flute pots...

A better view of this flute pot by Ransom.

The following pots and sculptures don't have the titles and artist's names, sorry...but they are part of the Eckerd College Exhibit.

  1. The exhibit at night was dramatic, but did not show the pottery well due to such limited lighting. I was glad to return during the daytime, and discover that the ceramics looked so much better.


Thanks for making this a more personal connection by saying what you think. I'll post your comments for others to see soon!
