Ben has a fabulous family. His uncle, Joe, is a potter. He teaches pottery at a high school and also makes pots that have appeared in church movies--so cool! Sometimes Joe hosts pottery nights where you can throw clay around a potter's wheel and we are hoping to go to one soon. This weekend, Joe hosted a pottery show at his house with lots of pots, cool cups, bowls, and spoon rests. I was so amazed with his talent. Also, Julie, made the most delicious brownies ever.
He had shelves of canisters, vases, and teapots.
Ben found his chalice! Wouldn't it be fun to have a set of those at the dinner table? I feel like we would need to have a medieval feast!
Joe and Julie let us pick out a pot of our own as a wedding gift. Joe told us a story about this pot and told us that this was one of the newest of his creations. I love birds and so we picked out this sleek and cool vase. I really like the two white birds at the top.
This pot cost two months worth of rent for us. Holy Cow! It was incredible and unique. We called it the curly vase. But it could probably hold a human.
We also walked away with a few other Christmas gifts and a new spoon rest for our stove top. We have one but I always feel like we need another one.
