The first piece I (= Kathleen) chose is a drawing I bought a few months ago from Christine Buckton Tillman.
I have been a fan of Christine’s work for awhile, and was always
excited to see new pieces she would post on her Flickr page. Then one
day a few months ago she posted this drawing and I could not stop
looking at it. I love its depth and all the layers of paint, ink,
collage, and pencil. Every time I look at it I see something entirely
The second pieces I chose are a hand-built ceramic pot and tea bowl. I don’t keep a lot of my own work on display (hardly any.) But there are a couple piece I made at a summer ceramics intensive when I was in high school (eons ago) that I always have out wherever I’ve lived. I like that they are personal to me and that they remind me of a really amazing creative time in my young life. Every time I move I’m terrified the big pot is going to break, (like right now!)
