The simple big vase

At drying stage, called Greenware.  Does anyone know why?

  1. I think it relates to a use of green meaning young or unfinished. Green cheese is young, immature cheese. A green goose is a young goose. I have always assumed that green ware refers to a pot's earliest stage.
    Now I'll have to go look up it's etamology and see if I am anywhere near the truth!Whatever! It's a cool pot!

Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
