country visit

May 28, 2011

 — I’m driving, again. Yesterday a friend and I made our annual pilgrimage  to “Fired Up”, a favorite pottery show. I added another saki cup to my growing collection, by Kinichi Shigeno, it is a mate for the one I bought last year.

then on to Chosin Pottery, studio and home of Robin Hopper and Judy Dyelle. This is another annual treat, the studio and surrounding gardens are glorious and Robin and Judy are often available for a chat.

these handcrafted doors look out onto the garden and koi pond.















a round window in the showroom reveals another view of the pond  

a stroll through the garden has many surprises 

a ghost on the bridge?

    the round windows are indeed wonderful, it’s always surprising when one finds them in architecture; somehow, the landscape seems so much more enchanting than when viewed through rectangles.
