Something special happened on February 24, 2018.  I published the 100th blog post on the Beachfront Pottery blog “At The Water’s Edge”.   I thought this is a great time to reflect on the past two years of ceramic art presented on this blog.

In March of 2016 I published the first blog post for the “At The Water’s Edge” blog.  That first blog post was the result of years of dreaming about describing ceramic works at art exhibit.  Since I started my Beachfront Pottery ceramic studio in 2006 I have attended many art fairs as a seller, and I saw many passionate artists who keep perfecting their craft.  I became a member of that group, and then I decided to report to the rest of the world about the creations of these artists.  That’s how I started this blog.  What follows is a brief selection (3 examples) of vases, sculptures, teapots, bowl, platters and pots from the previous 100 blogs.
