Making Lemonade out of Spilt Milk

November 16, 2020

So… I’ve been working on a wall in our kitchen.. trying to fill in some space with just the right thing…. after a year of looking at said space.

I’d finally found what I thought was just the thing.. some decorative, arty plates. This gave me an excuse to finally acquire some pottery art by a guy I came upon years ago on a trip to Taos. I’ve been getting Stephen Kilborn’s monthly newsletter for years (maybe ten years?)… something I signed up for when I visited his gallery/studio all those years ago (maybe more like 16-17 years ago, thinking back to the likely trip to Taos).

Anyway, settled on two fish plates. They arrived about 3 weeks ago and have been sitting on a chair in the kitchen waiting to be hung on the wall. But, today this happened:

Here’s its partner:

So…

I decided to go back to the kilbornpottery dot com website and search for an alternative and came up with these:

I just ordered them (which is why they are now sold out). Each one is a one-of-a-kind, a single issue art piece.

I like these because they remind me, of course, of mom. A collector of goofy owls her whole adult life.

This is where they will go:

The Enterprise is where the remaining fish plate will go, and the pair of ovals, of course, is where the owls will go.

For what it’s worth, that is my plan. I think we’ll enjoy them!
