Today Goodwill Rocks

So all you Goodwill hunters and gatherers will appreciate my enthusiasm today! Today I was at Goodwill and spotted a Tom Rohr woodfired pouring vessel. Sweet. Tom came down to Indiana University and did a woodfire workshop back in ’04 I think….when NCECA was in Indianapolis. At the time he was selling homebrew in the brewery jars with free refills! Click on the picture to check out Tom’s work.

***Update: I’m sad to report Tom’s untimely passing this summer. A great guy and a great potter, he will be missed. There is a place for community to share stories here.

    Jealous. I love goodwill, but all the pots i find there are the chunky high school potter-gone-wrong paper weight verity. Rohr’s pots are sexy!

    I think a better title for this post would be…A Good Day at Goodwill for A.Goodman
