Pots in use- thanksgiving style

Brian, Guthrie and I had the pleasure of hosting Thanksgiving at our home this year. Both of our families were able to come in from Ohio (and Charlotte), so we had a great time visiting, eating and sharing.

One moment I took a step back to survey the scene: our kitchen full of loved ones, enjoying food and each other's company. The tables were covered with handmade items- mostly pottery. Somehow this added even more warmth to the scene- almost as if the people who created these pieces were there with us too. It made me very thankful to be one who creates and I couldn't help wondering with whom else I was "sharing" these moments with through my pottery.
Guthrie joined in the festivities as well by trying sweet potatoes for the first time. He couldn't quite figure out which tasted better: the sweet potatoes or Suze's pot?

Man, I'm totally crushed out on that guy! Enough to let him eat some of my favorite pots!

Guthrie has quite a grip for a little guy.
I love to see a table laid with handmade plates and bowls.
