Wide open spaces and empty vessels reinvigorate my creative juices after the confines of the weekday routine. I’m talking about big sky weekends, a simple hand-thrown white ceramic bowl and a grill-press packed in the car trunk — essential components for a seaside road trip in search of fresh-caught appetizers, eaten in the cool ocean air on a hotel room porch. Voila! Foodie glamping.
TIPS: Ask for a remote room location with a patio or small deck. Don’t forget to pack a high wattage extension cord, olive oil, lemons, pocket knife, salt and pepper. The remainder is at your own risk (pleasure.)
White bowl by Wisconsin ceramicist, Abigail Smith. I can’t get enough of her work. This is my second piece from Abigail, and as with the first, she enclosed a hand-printed, hand-written thank you card and small ceramic ornament.
