Pottery Mask

tulip head

It was hot in the old gym.

Three fans kept the temperature

bearable as we walked

slowly down the aisles looking

for differences in the pieces. I

recognized some techniques now,

but so many pieces blended

into each other.  Naked raku

was rare. The cross hatched

shallow garlic olive oil bowl

was different. When we left the heat

had risen. There was nothing so unique

as a tulip helmet.
