the caterpillar / by Philip Tarlow

yesterday at dan’s in basalt i spotted this gorgeous caterpillar crawling up the side of one of dan’s new ceramic pieces.

it was in such synchrony with the spirit of the piece that it was hard to believe. it also allowed me to appreciate the beauty of dan’s designs. it keeps blowing me away that this retired doctor, who took up ceramics only 6 years ago, has evolved into a masterful ceramics artist.
