Pasta with Mark
One of the cool things about collecting (and making) handmade functional pottery is that when you use it, you kind of feel like you’re inviting the person who made it into your everyday life. This is a photo of some pasta I had the other night, on a plate made by Mark Peters. A few years ago I got to meet Mark when I attended his workshop at the John C. Campbell Folk School. I bought this plate maybe a decade ago (?) at a gallery in Asheville, and it’s one of my favorites. I have 2 similar plates and at least one of them finds its way to the dishwasher at least once a week.
