Blue Vase, Canister and Apple.. by Jan Lackey

Blue Vase, Canister and Apple
I have a small collection of vases, pots and canisters that I use for my still life paintings. When we moved into our old farmhouse, I discovered some old Czech pottery in our attic and in the barn. Pots that had been put away and forgotten.

I have heard that the clay in Bohemia is the best in the world for ceramics. There are some really talented artist here. Their handmade pottery is beautiful. The white and blue pieces are my favorite. I prefer the old traditional patterns although most of the Czechs prefer something new and creative.
