My sweet little orb

Last Friday I went to the Artisans Hand Craft Gallery annual winter sale, as I mentioned in this post. I got there in the afternoon and had already missed the early day rush.

As I sifted through the handmade treasures, I found a basket full of orbs made by Alan Paschell, a ceramicist from Calais, Vermont. I’m not one who is easily won over by quotes, but I couldn’t resist the one I discovered.

Well, as a bookbinder, I just can’t say it any better than that. The orb is now mine.

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
