Lolling at Caffè Divano

Today, Gary, Nan, Otto and I will be lolling around at Caffè Divano in Port Moody. I’m sure part of our conversation will be about clay! A nice way to spend a summer afternoon… I wish you could join us!

Goblets just asking to be filled on a hot summer day

It happened all at once: Hot Summer Nights, Dog Days of Summer, A Real Scorcher. Humid heat breaking through a La Niña July. Market umbrellas open, barbecues sizzle, and we work up a massive thirst. What we need are mondo goblets to quench ourselves. Iced tea, h2O, Sangria, lemonade, what have you, but please put it in something big and fun! A big ceramic goblet stays cool in our hands and is pleasing to the eye. The funkier the better….

Andy Nasisse Ceramic Art — Incredible imagery, marvelous designs. These would be like drinking from sculptures….

Fruity Goblets — We can only wish with these ultra specimens! A feast for the eyes: Carmen Miranda meets Fred Flintstone…

Cheeky Tiki — These Cheeky Tahiti goblets are a must! Mai Tai, lounge lizard music, rumba!

Umbria Fruttiera Wine Goblet — This is lovely piece from “a small hill town near Assisi. This small, family factory has been making ceramics for generations.”

Nature’s Adornments — Billed a medieval stoneware goblet. This appeals to me because it holds a lot of liquid and it will stay cool to the touch with iced beverages.

Katie Scully Ceramics — This lovely porcelain vessel is glazed a soothing color and it looks like it would feel good to hold.
