That Jugtown frogskin glazed goblet.

I wouldn't have picked that one out from the group.

ADDED: The goblet was made by the same person about whom Meade said yesterday: "The potter who made the bowl which is bigger on the inside than the outside: Vernon Owens."

Cool! Nice to see North Carolina pottery getting its due. My Mom taught at Seagrove High in the mid-50s and I have a number of pieces from Cole's Pottery.

The pieces my mother bought ~60 years ago are white and not nearly as interesting as these. I hope they're packed up somewhere, but it wouldn't surprise me if the step-mother ditched them. She messed up a lot of my parents' furniture, accidently on purpose.

Poor artists wind up buried in potter's field, or kilned.

It does look Perfectly designed to hold the fresh squeezed juice from 36 valencia oranges, give or take 12.

For a very long time, I collected pottery, so it's all over my house. Unlike some other collections, I still display it all, and admire one piece or another nearly every day. To my mind, pottery adds great warmth to a room.

Your orange bowl was stunning. I have one nearly like that, only mine is smaller.

How many frogs' skins are in that goblet's glaze?

Oh. When I read Jugtown in the header, I though this would be another thread about Tiger Woods.

Is this a cafe, or are we supposed to talk about goblets?

"Bigger on the inside than on the outside."

C. S. Lewis? I thought this was a reference to the TARDIS. (And I have at least 4 or 5 Lewis' books lying around in various stages of read-edness, not counting the Chronicles of Narnia.)

Shoot, meant to say those goblets are beautiful. My older sister has an MFA in ceramics and I have loved pottery since she started bringing it home from college lo these many years ago.

Sorry for the double post, but I had to express my pottery admiration/envy.

Jugs.

Joan, see The Last Battle, in the Chronicles.

This reminds me of the last part of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. You have chosen... wisely.

You certainly can't go wrong with a Vernon Owen piece from Jugtown.
