HCC Student Pottery Sale – Other People's Art

Dec 9, 2018

I haven’t made one of my Other People’s Art posts in a while – there’s a long running section here on the blog for the posts though – HERE. Recently we attended the latest Harford Community College Pottery Sale. We really look forward to these, never failing to find a couple of gems. And the prices – wow. The tricky part was finding someone to give us the names of the potters. We treasure the pieces in our art collection, no mater where they come from. The piece at the top, by Lynn Klara, is about seven inches tall – it is gorgeous. I immediately walked over and grabbed it, carrying it around until we zeroed in on the lidded jar below – a little over six inches tall. The artist is Catherine Jones.

’Tis the season – as nice as the jar above is, it’s to be part of a Christmas present. When possible, we give art. Nan has her own plans for the bowl at the top. H.C.C does these sales sporadically, often skipping years. We hope they are back to stay. And maybe next time or year I’ll have enough advance notice to announce it here – it’s a lot of fun, as well as opportunity to pick up a Christmas gift.
