One of the things I really enjoyed about vacation in Door County, Wisconsin was the enclave of artists working in the various communities. Many of them had not only galleries, but studio galleries.
I really enjoyed visiting TR Pottery in Fish Creek. I watched Tony throwing some bowls and it was really fascinating to me how easily the clay forms took shape in his skilled hands.
Another thing I appreciated about TR Pottery is that all of their pieces are designed to be used. They are, in a sense, every day art. I just love that! I bought myself a tea cup there. Something about the fact it has no handle and the way the glaze fired in a sort of yin/yang pattern really spoke to me. I picked it up when I first saw it. I walked around the gallery looking at all the pieces available, but I couldn't put down "my" cup. Don't you think it's lovely?
I have my morning cup of tea or mate in it each day and I savor every sip. Thanks TR Pottery for adding a touch of beauty to my day!
