Studio Description: Hi, my name is Russel and I’m a Pot Fondler. There I
said it and already I feel better about it. I’m the guy you’ve seen
skulking behind the potted ferns in galleries and fairs just waiting
for you to turn your back so I can get at your pots. I can’t control
it! In the presence of good pots something just comes over me! I’ve got
to feel the balance of their weight, pet their bottoms, stroke their
sensuous curves, nuzzle their graceful necks, their luscious lips!!!!
Sorry, I’m getting carried a way just talking about it! I know I’ve
been an embarrassment to my friends. ~ As if that weren’t enough! I,
(oh I’m so sick) I even go so far as to MAKE POTS for OTHER PEOPLE TO
FONDLE!! I build simple friendly forms, by hand; enrobed in layer after
layer of lustrous terra-sigilatta, then smoked in an envelope of
newspaper and aluminum foil. The serene surface of terra-sigilatta and
the warm subtle hues of smoke firing, a combination just waiting to
trap the latent pot fondler. ~ And I know you’re out there! I’ve seen
you stealing glances at other potter’s handles, seeming to
”accidentally” brush against the curving hip of a large urn, casually
upsetting a pot to get a better look at the foot ring (foot ring
fetishists!). But you needn’t feel ashamed, it’s natural, and you’re
not alone. Give in to your desire, you have nothing to lose but your
pocket change! ~ Russel Fouts, Founding member of the Brussels Chapter
