You saw two pretty pieces of pottery above. The second picture shows you the bottom of the taller one and it gives the date and the studio who made it.
I found these pots at estate sales and thought they were nice and brought them home. I tried and tried to remember where I had heard of the Around Tuit Studio name. I asked friends who had shops back in the 80's and they didn't remember either.
I finally had a great idea! I'd ask the ceramics instructor that I had when I was attending Harding College (now Harding University) if he might remember. His name is Paul Pitt, a great artist, and he is the one who would remember anything creative that involved pottery.
No one has a land line anymore so I found him on facebook and asked to be his friend. He accepted my offer and when I messaged him with my question, he never hesitated. He knew exactly who did it, when they were created and how they were created. He, in fact, did some of the turning of the pots, others did the decorating, and the owner of the studio would finish them and go off with them to some of the many craft shows that were being held back then.
The pots have the names of the ones who decorated them. The tall one has Kevin on it. The shorter one has a name that I can't quite read.
If you remember this studio perhaps you can add to our history! And, Mr. Pitt, if you want to "tell us more" we'd love to hear it!
