This birthday I gave away pottery.
I was very fortunate to have lots of family members around to distribute it to.
The main trick was, how to make sure that certain pieces went to certain people.
I did give some choices to them...as well as directly hand some to them.
This one came in handy when a pot of pasta was about to be served, and there wasn't a bowl the right size, so voila, I pulled it out of the crate where it was waiting, and it became the serving bowl it was meant to be.
The pretty platter/plate became a nice serving dish also.
This one was special to me, and I gave it to a special relative...thinking how she is so feminine and this pitcher is dainty as well. The raspberry glaze is really beautiful on it, which only another potter might appreciate.
So I liked giving away some of my better pieces. I probably had a few other ones that I can't find the photos of...
and now I don't have them on shelves or crates in my house anymore. They may remain in the homes of those I gave them to, or they may become many pieces in trash somewhere.
But I've completely let go of them.
You are so welcome!
