Still Life with Pottery

Still Life with Pottery. Colored pencil on paper. Copyright 2010.

I set up my collection of Tobe pottery for this still life. During my year in Japan, I lived a bus ride away from the town of Tobe, where the pottery is made. After spending hours looking through the warehouse there, my friend and I each finally settled on a few pieces for souvenirs. Little did I realize then that the pottery was readily available in the local department stores and I would receive more of it as parting gifts.
