Back in March I drove some great back-roads by Lanesboro (Minnesota) to photograph some of the beautiful pottery created by Joel Sampson of  COPPER CRANE POTTERY.

His studio has large windows that let all this wonderful light in. We even saw a deer, munching away on squash, right…and I mean RIGHT…outside his windows. Apparently it sleeps right up against the wall. What a fun sight!

Joel has some amazing work and I loved how he creatively added flowers to the vases to show the possibilities. Check out one of my favorites below; the sink with imprints of a child’s hands…how creative is that!!! Then there is the Jar Fountain (images 6, 7 & 8.) with the itty bitty flakes that look like gold. I had a hard time keeping my little Jakob away from that one when we saw it at a gallery. The request for “lift me up so I can see” went on and on and on…

The Japanese Lantern Fountain (last two images) was amazing to hear. Yes! HEAR. When Joel plugged in the simple fountain and the water was going it was the sound of RAIN. Just light and delightful.

Enjoy the images below and don’t forget to check out some more work on his website. The images below cover just some of his incredible work.
