Bear Gulch Montana

My wife and I just returned from Vacation to Montana and Idaho. We had the chance to visit an amazing "Pre History" site called Bear Gulch. This is a gorge on a private ranch near Lewistown, Montana that has the largest concentration of Petroglyphs and Pictogrpahs in the US. There is also a huge fossil site. The color of the rock with this ancient art work (3,000-10,000 years old) was awe inspiring. I keep thinking about how I might capture some of this feel in some new work.

Jars! Jars! Jars!

I started loading the kiln this morning for a bisque fire and I wanted to make sure I captured for you these jars I made to be companions for the small pitchers. I created several slightly different forms and lid treatments as some what of a study. Enjoy.
