Southern Sustenance: Our journey toward a sensibly sustainable, purposeful, and soulful life

Pottery

Mark is our resident potter, but the boys and I have been known to spend time in the studio.  The studio is  in the sunroom with great views into the backyard and hollow behind the house.

Mark’s favorite potter is George Ohr, The Mad Potter of Biloxi.   Mark aspires to have his work thin like Ohr’s.  If you are ever on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, you should go the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art.

Some of Mark’s pottery is functional while other pieces are purely decorative.  He likes to experiment with glazes.  His favorite thing, though, is to giveaway his pottery to our friends and family.
