Here’s the rest of the pottery we made at Chandler Swain’s Pottery Camp. Mostly I see these pieces as funny little wobbly things that we made with our very own hands. Their charm lies in their obvious lack of proficiency.
The day we picked them up, I made stuffed green peppers for dinner and I was scanning about for something to cook them in when I noticed my homemade casserole dish. It was the perfect size for two green peppers.
I never expected to actually cook food in any of my pottery pieces. I was (and continue to be) impressed by the fact that I made a piece of pottery that can be trusted to go into the oven with food in it. That’s not just a funny little wobbly thing, that’s a serious piece of pottery with a job!
