After having spent seven months living in New Mexico I purchased a sizable pottery collection. Many of the pieces were obtained at estate sales, garage sales, resale shops, antique stores and art galleries. The southwest has so many wonderful potters, I couldn't help my self! When I arrived home to Illinois I began looking up a few of the pieces and I soon realized I had some nice mid-century modern pieces.
What intrigues me about pottery is its form and function. It has beautiful, clean, smooth lines, a true work of fine art and is usable art for everyday living. Pottery used as a vase, drinking vessel, bowl has been around for centuries.
