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.

It’s been too long since my last post. I’ll try to catch up with a few in the next few days. This summer has been crazy!

Last week I went down to Beaver State Park with Libby, Gabe, Pauley and their mom. As always, I had such a fun time with those guys. Love to chat away with mom. They have grown sooo much since last year!

We had the most beautiful weather and the place pretty much all to ourselves. Some of the shots I took while standing in the creek. I guess I need new rain boots, because my one foot felt icy cold all of a sudden. The kids had big eyes, when I took the boot off and poured water out of it. Later I managed to dip my butt in the water as well. Mom laughed at me and wished she had a camera…funny! Good times!

While the kids were sitting by the river throwing rocks in the water, there was a quick wind gust…then we had a slow shower of golden leaves falling quietly all around us…like snow. It was truly a magical moment!

Here are a few shots of those beautiful kids! Enjoy!

Tait is one cute little boy! Like most one year olds he didn’t have much time to sit still. He only stopped for a moment, when the farmer next door came by with his tractor.  : ) Here are a few shots.

We’re down at the dock, the kids are playing around. Theodor asks me to take a picture of him jumping. Sure, let’s see it. Then! Hey, is my little angel is up to a dirty trick? Sure enough. Jakob puts the little crab he just found in his cousins hair. Here’s how it went down.

Watch Theodor jump high.

Watch sneaky cousin Jakob put a little crab in Theodor’s hair.

Watch Jakob walk away like nothing happened. 

Watch Jakob play innocent. Not very convincing my dear son. Poor Theodor is left with a little crab tangled in his hear. 

Watch Jakob run back to help his poor cousin.

Watch Jakob pretend he’s looking for the crab in Theodor’s hair.

Watch Theodor doubtful when Jakob says: “I don’t know how that crab landed in your hair???”

Watch Theodor bravely get ready for another jump. That darn cousin!!!

Watch Theodor have fun jumping off the dock. I’m sure payback will come to Jakob soon enough.
