Stone, and Children of Stone by phillipcmiller

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

I love to visit art galleries, to take in the creations of numerous people who’ve dedicated their lives to perfecting the imges within themselves and bringing them to the surface for all to see. Each gallery I enter contains artwork I’d love to take home with me, but there is a reason why the term “starving artist” is so universal; the art is truly worth a months wages, but who is able to convince the expense of monthly necessities to vanish for another 30 days? Yet, it is difficult for me to leave a gallery without something in my hand, and that “something” is usually an affordable piece of pottery, with coffee mugs being my favorite. I have always loved the rustic spirit of wood and stone…these two mugs are children of stone. I have included the parents in the photograph, all recently purchased in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

    Great shot :)

  • Thanks Julie : ) These are just two of about eight pieces of handmade pottery in my house. Both of these are a bit small to be used for my morning cup of coffee, but they make nice conversation pieces.

    Two beautiful pieces in your collection!
    The design makes them seem, indeed, so heavy . The presentation… and the title is clearly inspired.

  • Thanks you Dorina : )
    These are as you you say, very heavy, as if they are solid stones like the ones behind them. The misty green one is very pretty, the other one is her ugly little brother :D but he is very strong and heavy.

    How beautiful Phillip

  • Hi RV : ) long time no see! Wanna see something cool? Look a couple of comments above this one to the Katherine Thomas comment about how these mugs would look good in coloring pencil. Then, go to her site and see her picture called “Origins” done in coloring pencil. Do you recognize a couple of mugs : )

    Beautiful image and words.

  • Thank you Jonni, especially for your kind mention of the words. The picture takes only a glance, less than a second. Time is required to read the words.Thank you for finding the words worth your time : )
    I do love the materials of the Earth; unique stone, wood, and the things talented people make from them. Artists have wonderful spirits living inside!
