The Garth Clark Gallery in New York is having a retrospective of American potter Beatrice Wood. This runs from the 12th of September to the 4th of November. Beatrice Wood lived a crazy life and potted her way into old age. This is a photo of her looking fabulous and tough behind the potters wheel as an old lady. I love seeing photos like this- I hope this is me when I am old.
This Beatrice Wood chalice is a celabratory item. There is a sense of upward movement and dynamics in this pot which makes me felling like standing and "Charging my glass".
"To old age, hard work feasts and good company!"
