Arts and Crafts...A Bit of Humor .....HomeRome Tour

By

This past week, while visiting one of my sellers, I was able to tour their art collection. Being a former ceramic and porcelain artist and attending many craft shows, it is always a pleasure to see what other's choose for their home. Got permission to photograph a few pieces and want to share them with you. Love the whimsy and humor in some of these pieces.

Each February I look forward to the ACC Craft show here in Baltimore. Here are some articles from previous years.

Margaret - As usual ... you inform, entertain and educate ... and sometimes all three at once!  These are great and I specifically like the high-stepping spoon!

Hi Margaret...That lamp is so clever.  Once you see it you realize that is something that could be done but who would think to do it?  Someone more creative than me!

Interesting collection.  I am sure the home must be a great place to visit and tour.  I'm glad the owner agreed to your photos.

Margaret - having been an art collector for some time, and bein a past art gallery owner with my wife, one of my passions is exploring art in the community, which includes when I am touring homes, working with clients, etc.

Thanks for sharing this whimsical collection. You must have had fun!

Jeff, I have always enjoyed your writings about the arts and crafts in your area. One of the special pieces in this collection was a ceramic bowl by yours truly...but I did not photograph that one.

it would also be interesting to see what kind of home your clients live in.  You need a special place for crafts like these.
