first fluting

I made this little cache pot in 2003, I think, before my son was born. It was the first piece that I made with fluting, which I have always been crazy about. I think I'm much better at it now- lots of practice between 2003 and 2008- but this piece still sings to me. It was for sale, once, at a festival and judged "not suitable" by a customer. I agreed that it was rather rustic; she bought something else, and little yellow rough-flutey-pot came back home. It has hosted this small rabbit's foot fern ever since. I'll show some better, more traditional and polished fluted wares in the coming days.
