Lovely color harmony!
More color relationship.  Simple and love the shape of the vessel.

                                                            Simple black and white.  

Beautifully stylized figures and wonderful color.

I've posted here and mentioned before that I have been creating ceramic containers and recently found more inspiration for some new pieces.  I hope to use the color and the stylization of these.  You know, I used to just pass by these sections in museums that displayed these art forms and run straight for the paintings. Now that I am using other venues for my creativity I can't get enough of the rooms with the silverware, porcelains, glassware, ceramics, jewelry etc.  Well, I do pass on the knights armor and weaponry sections!  Give me Prada and Alexander McQueen rooms instead.

I'll help myself to these!

I was recently in Massachusetts and Vermont taking a workshop myself at the Bennington College! That place has a fabulous history.  I went with a good friend and we were able to fit a few museums in,  the Clark and the Williams College Art Museum.  We almost left and I just ducked into a room off to the side and discovered the David Park beauty and the Homer at the Clark.  I said "I'll just take these two for now."
