Pottery by Amelia Stamps Arrives Today

We are very "picky" when it comes to choosing pottery for the gallery. Some of you may recall that I (Wally) was a professional potter for many years. Perhaps I should dig up some old pictures of my work and post them on this blog for you to see? Should I?
We were excited to discover Amelia Stamps at a show we went to in May. Not only do we really like her work, but we also found her to be delightfully charming. All of her pottery is thrown on the potter's wheel and is made from a white stoneware. Her craftsmanship is flawless. The work we commissioned her to do arrived today and we had a great time unpacking it and getting it ready for you to see in the gallery. We do not have any of her work posted on our site yet, so the "Tea Set" above will have to satisfy your curiosity for now. Stop by the gallery to see the entire collection.

Isn't it amazing what a glass artist can do with heat, relatively unsophisticated materials (silica, sand and feldspar), talent, bunches of experience and imagination? The attached image of "Coralette" by Glass Eye Studio out in Seattle is an amazing example of the combination of the above mentioned elements.
We have been busy over the past few days photographing some of the beautiful glass pieces we have in the gallery and have just gotten them posted for you to see. Check them out and tell us which piece is your favorite.
