ABC WEDNESDAY-"I" Incredible Artist & Imaginative Pots: Potter's Homecoming #2

Above:  the artist is signing his book for an admirer. The artwork below Michael Simon's photo contains more of his nature images that are important elements as part of the designs.




See my post yesterday for more about this artist and his retrospective exhibition that's at the Northern
Clay Center on Franklin Avenue. For additional information read the article here that caught my eye and discusses the artist and the exhibition.

Hate to add this, but BEWARE THE IDES OF  MARCH!!

  3. Thank you for this. Lots of times we never get to see the artist. I really do like his work!

    Re your question on Ocala: I don't know much about horses. In Ocala we have mostly race horses, but others are also bred and raised for harness racing and for jumping ... The photo was taken at HITS and I'm sure this girl rode a jumper.
