In a section of the Te Papa Museum in Wellington, New Zealand, pottery and other Maori crafts were on display. This piece had a certain, quiet, joie de vivre about it that I found most pleasing to the eye…the colors and the artful design

I would have this crated home for me Phil…………………..beautiful …………………………Joyce
joyceI would have too! Except none of the items were for sale, but had been donated to the museum. Shame!
Excellent subject Phil and well presented.Bob
thanks bob, I particularly liked this piece and would have loved to have owned it, but not for sale!
thanks sylviaglad you enjoyed this one
A fine work, Phil. :-)
petethe level of artistry I saw with the Maori seemed more developed and pleasing than what I saw from the Aboriginal people whose art was not as sophisticated as this.
Such an eye appealing piece of pottery, EXQUISITE! artistry. A nice addition for your collection Phil…Jules
julieit was so attractive, but as a true museum piece on loan, not for sale. Looks like my “ownership” will be vicariously through this image
Needs a prominent place on your wall Phil…Jules
that I can work on for sure….when you come by, you may see it….oh, by the by, heading to the Hornerth Kingdom tomorrow to our little island for the summer….be quiet for a time during the drive
It’s beautiful, Phil – I can almost feel the roughness of the clay
ShulieI wished it had been for sale!
What an amazing piece!!! Has been on my ‘bucket list’ to learn how to do this for a long time…Beautiful!
willow, thanks for your note…good luck in pursuing that dream!
