Gillian Parke – I wish I made it…

stuff 039 stuff 042

Last Christmas my husband surprised me with these.   I do wish I could make something this fantastic.  What I love about this piece is how she combines Shigaraki stoneware and the look of fine porcelain.  I really respect the way she works the contrast in her work.  When I was studying pottery in Tokoname, Japan, I loved using the Shigaraki-aki (stoneware).  Gillian’s piece reminds me of my time in Japan, and my current life now.
