Tree Jars and a Jig

For your listening pleasure (if you're so inclined), I put together a slide show of some jars that I decorated with my latest tree designs, plus a couple of sticks of bamboo and an osprey nest (including osprey).

Set to the tune, Phil's Jig, written by me and played by me on flute and Will McCanless on banjo during a 2008 gig. The tune was named in honor of a friend of mine who battled his way back from heart surgery by incessantly playing the bodhran, an Irish frame drum.

The shapes of the pots are based on preserve jars made in Seagrove long ago. I first started making this shape for Jerry and Charlotte Fenburg at Humble Mill Pottery back in the late 1980s.
