Bowl Number 5

When my blogging friend Jessica started on a new artistic venture she offered some of her first pieces to her readers.

Beautiful bronze and blue ceramic bowl in front of card of Jessica’s house.

I was fortunate enough to receive a beautiful hand thrown bowl.

The bowl looks perfect with the kitchen and dining room colors.

The exterior glaze is mottled blue/black gloss overglazed with satin bronze.  The small dish beautifully complements décor at The Glade, especially the kitchen.

The interior has a satin/metallic glaze.

The interior is also bronze. Jessica really knew just what my style is when she suggested this bowl for me. Thank you!

The mugs I’m using now could be replaced with something more like this special one-of-a-kind bowl.


As matter of fact a set of mugs in these colors would be perfect to replace the tuxedo mugs I’ve been enjoying.

Do you have an artistic outlet?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

    1. I’m not tired of the mugs but two of them have hairline cracks. I especially like the fact that they are broader at the bottom than at the top — sturdy and untippable. Jo

  1. Those hairline cracks – aren’t they a pain? I’d rather the mug just plain broke (when empty, of course) so I wouldn’t be tempted to keep it.
