Doug the Potter


Doug, my husband, returned from his trip on Saturday night. Yeah! He had a great time and did so many really cool things.
I was a little jealous but then I did get my 2nd draft finished on my WIP and I had an excuse to drink lots of caffeine and eat too much chocolate.
While on his trip, he went to an art center and learned how to make traditional Korean pottery. As you can see, my husband isn’t quite a master potter yet, but he’s sure talented!
Korea is famous for their pottery, especially the Celadon, which has an ethereal jade quality to its surface.
For hundreds of years, the Chinese and Japanese have coveted the beautiful masterpieces crafted in Korea. The Japanese even went so far as to start a war and capture many Korean potters, including Yi SamPyong.
Doug’s pot is supposed to be delivered to our home by the end of the summer. It will be a nice piece added to our collection.

    My husband took a ceramics class at UofO back when we were in college. I still have the pieces he made.

    So much fun – thanks for sharing

    What a fun treat for him! Not to dis my spouse, but if he tried potting, we’d end up with…well, I’m not sure what, but it wouldn’t be a pot!

  3. PJ Hoover says:

    I’ve always wanted to try pottery. But I want the husband to try also. Maybe someday!

  4. Danyelle says:

    Awesome! That would be so much fun. ๐Ÿ˜€

    *is green now*

  5. If that’s the piece he made in the last picture, it looks like he did a really great job! What a nice, personal piece to have for years to come. Doug should be very proud of himself. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Glad you enjoyed. I know what you mean though Meg. If I tried something, my pot would be a disaster!
