Corn Centered Pot, S.K. Webster

Corn Centered Pot

High fire Stoneware, Jade Green glaze with iron oxide underglaze decoration.  9x4x4 

After my frustrating attempts to paint bamboo underglaze decoration, I went back to my roots.  I couldn't paint bamboo because I don't know bamboo.  I do know corn.  Like Carl Rogers, I   grew up in a midwestern agricultural community.  According to Rogers, the kernel of self  can grow to its potential when given the right nurturing environment.  Client centered therapy strives to provide such an environment.  This pot is well centered and reaches its potential because corn has been part of the environment that nurtured the potter.
