Rebecca Parker

As promised yesterday, here is the piece that Rebecca gave me. It's heavy and solid to hold. I love how this earthy weight contrasts with the feathery marks and the sheen of white glaze. Having recently done a basic ceramics workshop, I have a new found respect and appreciation for this craft. It takes so much skill to produce a piece like this.

Rebecca and Kurt came to Amsterdam from Portland just a couple of months after Toby and I arrived. We've shared Thanksgivings and a boat and dangerous truffles and ghostly bike rides and so many laughs. It is sad to see them go but I'm pretty excited about the fact we will get to see them in Wellington (New Zealand) next year.

Rebecca, everytime I look at your beautiful work I will remember your fantastic laugh!


  1. I love it! You have an amazing eye for photography. These are beautiful shots. Thanks for making me look good! We have shared many wonderful memories with you and Tobs. We'll miss you dearly but knowing we get to see you in New Zealand takes the edge off. Love you lots! Rebecca
