Susan Folwell is one of the exciting innovators in Pueblo pottery.  This new jar is for her current show, “Roads Well Traveled: Route 66“.  This piece is entitled “Holbrook Rock Shiop“.  The tile is painted with the large outdoor fiberglass dinosaurs that are all along the highway!  Of course, they need to be behind some wire, just in case!  The tile is a charming view of the curios and curiosities along Route 66!  The tile is signed, Susan Folwell.

Susan says of this show:

“I’ve been taking trips and traveling along Route 66 in Arizona and New Mexico since I was a kid.  There is so much to see, interpret, and wonder about that past!  Much of the area lends itself to my natural interest in the obscure and unusual.  Neon signs from half a century ago still serve a purpose and are still in working order.  Curio shops are all along the route with enough to feed my imagination for weeks.  It history and reflection, a strange reflection of where we were as a country and a nostalgia that seems to continue to push through the cracks of time.  Honstely, it’s a walk down memory lane and there isn’t much about it, no matter how weird or unexpected, that just doesn’t make me want to smile.  I like that.”
