My step dad is a potter.
He has been in a college pottery class for as long as I have known him.

Each Christmas we are the lucky lucky recipients of his awesome talent and his incredible generousity.

Let yourself go back to the scene in Ghost where she is at her wheel and has this perfect vase turning with the water and the clay and the gentle touch of her hands.   And then...she messes up and the whole thing is ruined.

This is how the sweetie pie bowl began.

It was meant to be a bowl, but in the middle of the process something happened and it was ruined. is far from a mistake.  In fact, it is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen.

The imperfection became perfection by looking through different eyes.

It is not a bowl with a crooked is a bowl that looks like a heart.

It is a sweetie pie bowl.
