I don’t know much about pottery so will let the pictures do the talking.

My brother in law Larry Knows his pottery.Notice the intensity as he studies the finished vase.

My favorite is the INUKSHUK

inukshuk in English[2] or inukhuk in Inuinnaqtun[3]) is a man-made stone landmark or cairn

Linda got tired shopping and thought she would go for a bike ride. She found out the bikes brakes didn’t work. (She could have ended up in the lake)

Forgot to mention Ted R. has gotten pretty good telling the weather.

I like going to places like that. It's sometimes fun just looking around. But I especially like that weather rock. I want to try to make my own.

Looks like a fun outing! My sister used to throw pots on a wheel and fire them in a kiln in their back yard (before they hit the road) so I find myself visiting pottery shops when I travel too. Thanks for dropping by Sacred Ruminations ... as for your question about my sister's Alaskan photos, I'm not sure what I'll share yet but I suspect once I've LOOKED at them I'll want to make some mosaics ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

I enjoyed the tour of the pottery shop and I'm glad Linda figured out how to stop the bike without brakes!

Sorry you had to have a passport to cross the border into Canada. It wasn't my call. And guess what! I have to use my passport to get into the U.S. Yep, the times they are a-changing!

I love pottery. Used to make some myself which is one of the most satisfying things ever
