FINISHES

LULA Pottery glaze/clay combinations are named after birds of the Pacific Northwest. If we were being technical, the names would be Solitary Sandpiper, American Kestrel, Blue Heron, Pie-Billed Grebe, and California Quail because you know my research was species specific. (Actually, technical would be their latin names, wouldn’t it? I’ll spare you.) Please award me according points for simplification and know it took tremendous restraint not to post the corresponding bird photos. Names are fun. Themes are fun. This is fun.
