Appreciation of Creation

The other day at my ‘9 to 5’ I found simple joy as I walked back to my office with my hand-crafted wood-fired wheel-thrown pottery coffee mug.

Simple. Joy.

I gazed at the hot coffee swirling around inside my mug. And I was happy to know I’d be soon drinking the coffee, as it cooled down a bit.

I marveled at the mug in my hand, admiring the handle, the curves, the tapering base, the strong bottom, and the slightly protruding rim that my lips contoured with every sip.

A smile was on my face as a co-worker came around the corner.

I was happy to share in that brief moment that I was simply enjoying my mug.

I was in appreciation of creation.

Here is a link to my current wood-fired series of pottery creations:
