Many of you know Sandra Erickson from Xanga. She is a superb artist, with exquisite taste in the choice of her words when she writes poetry and prose. It is so sad that she doesn’t make an appearance here or at xanga any more. I keep in touch with her regularly though, either through facebook or by email or phone.
Like I said, she is a master artist, not just with her words, but also with ceramics. Every room in my home has a stamp of Sandra’s work. A few weeks back she sent me beautiful collection of nesting bowls and ceramic planters. And yesterday I received some large pieces.
If you happen to know her through facebook, I would appreciate if you could visit her, and boost her ego some, and perhaps buy a couple of things from her. She is such a dedicated artist and loves to please friends. Here are just a few of the things that she sent me recently.
This is one of the larger bowl, with beautiful colors. The smooth uneven edges are characteristic of her work. Next to this bowl is the orchid planter. My orchid plants are very heavy with blooms, and the planter couldn’t hold the large amount of soil in it. Therefore I have a Christmas cactus in it instead.
The three smaller bowls in the foreground in the picture below, have the most delicious tinge of azure and yellow and the inside is glazed to perfection. To the far left of the bowls there is a taller ceramic votive holder. It has small holes in it, which she has cleverly placed. I am blessed with three such beauties. At night I have the candles lit and place them inside these, and the room turns magical.
Just thought you would like to see them, and these are just a few of what she has sent me.
