Abbie's Orchid Pot by Abbie Zabar
“I consider my own gardens — where a clay pot is never less
important than what’s planted in it — when Mara and Lenore ask me to design a
pot for the Seibert & Rice ‘American Collection.’ I draw a basic Long Tom.
It grows into a Longer Tom with a thin rolled edge at the top. And another roll
at the base, for balance. I doodle wispy vines. They will be incised above and
below the rims. I doodle some friendly critters, homage to my coworkers in the
gardens that we share. They are hand-throwing the pots that I designed, these
artisans of Impruneta who don’t speak any English. My Italian couldn’t be
worse. Yet, positioning Abbie’s critters with the flying ones on top and the
crawlers on the bottom, that was their interpretation. We’re talking the same
language, the language of the garden.”
