“Art allows us to lose ourselves and find ourselves at the same time.” ~Thomas Merton
A mix of business and pleasure took me on the road over the past few weeks. I saw landscapes and seascapes far different than what the magnificent Northwest Mountains of Colorado have to offer!
I like to explore all different kinds of art in Steamboat and in other towns, too. I came across a “Scape” of a different kind in the historic and artsy town of Frederick, Maryland. I visited The Little Pottery Shop and I learned about the wonderful art of Table Scapes.
The Little Pottery Shop
is not only a retail establishment, but it also has a studio for creating handcrafted pottery. The artisans had teamed up with The Loft at AI, an antiques gallery next door, to showcase the displays of their pottery, both hand built and thrown on the wheel. The TableScapes were a feast for the eye! It was like browsing through the “I Spy Books.” Antique drawer knobs and other baubles were adapted for napkin rings, the table linens, glassware, chairs, candleholders, flower vases and other ornamentation all contributed to the overall visual effects. Each table beautifully carried out the theme and other accessories helped create the scene.
There were 12 enchanting TableScapes:
- The EnchantedForest
- Made in Maryland
- Scare-tacular Table
- A Walk inProvence
- The Wedding to Remember
- Christmas Memories
- Thanksgiving Turkey Table Talk
- Indian Treasures Table
- A Day at the Beach
- The Madhatter
- Down on the Farm
- Serving up the Stew
No matter where people travel, in this country or worldwide, there are artists everywhere providing personally fulfilling opportunities for people to learn more about art. It’s available in rural hamlets, in cities and everywhere in between. Don’t miss out!
