I just loved Barbara Bragg's yard. On the house front she had placed gourds, piles of them, in the window boxes. What a good idea.
This is her raku kiln outside under this little shelter. She had another kiln inside. Most or maybe all of her work is handbuilt and raku fired.
The view from her back yard and another gourd arrangement. It was fun having a reason to drive around this village as I discovered that it is GORGEOUS. There are many hilly winding roads with incredible vistas of the River Valley.
