I want every single thing potter Allan Buitekant has placed with us on the site, but it will be awhile before I can amass such a collection of the North Carolinian's work. Add to that conundrum, the fact that he has some new work fresh from the kiln. His classic clean lines and utilitarian work looks great in any home. Are you listening family? We're really going to need that platter come November. Ah, well, I guess I'm going to have to put it on my wish list.
Buitekant has just been awarded Artist in Residence status at the Silver Fox gallery in Hendersonville, North Carolina. "My work is also to be included in the Asher Gallery in the Houston Center for Contemporary Crafts," he writes.
Thanks for the update Allan, and keep the beautiful pieces coming!--Ruth Mitchell
