Today will just be a very brief posting as it is Yom Kippur. I am wishing all of you a very easy fast and a happy and healthy New Year!
As promised, the information on the dishes I used on Mah Jongg Wednesday is the subject of today’s posting. Back to regular postings tomorrow…
These beautiful dishes were all made by Don Carpentier, “a true renaissance man of his time; he was a self-taught craftsman, tinsmith, blacksmith, potter, carpenter, and mason, as well as a teacher, mentor, father, friend, husband, brother and uncle.” His beautiful mochaware came from actual molds dating back to the 18th century. His historic Eastfield Village was a monument to those days and a true labor of love.
I am extremely fortunate to have known Don and to have been able to call him my friend. Over many years I put together a very special collection of his pottery and I treasure every piece I own.
