The Magic Kingdom of Pottery
On Sunday Beth and I took a ride to Atwater to visit the Bauer Factory Showroom. Once a month, the showroom has a seconds sale of Bauer and Russel Wright pottery. The seconds look almost perfect. There may be some glaze imperfections or some colors are less popular at retail shops than others. I have a few vintage pieces and many new pieces of this colorful pottery.
The warehouse is located in an alley off San Fernando Road, at the border of Los Angeles (Atwater) and Glendale. The warehouse is a gray metal building, very ramshackle. Once you walk through the front door you're assaulted with color and vibrance. It's quite a shock at first to go from a grim alley to all of this gorgeousness!
Beth and I managed to find a few lovely pieces for our collections.
It is impossible to snap a bad picture of this colorful pottery!
After our pottery extravaganza, we cooled off with lunch at the Village Bakery and Cafe in Atwater. Yum! Thanks for coming with me, Beth. Enjoy your beautiful new pottery!
