Hooked on Houses is hosting her "Hooked on Fridays" blog party; I hope y'all will click here and have look. Today, I'm hooked on urns and particularly AW Pottery's acres of urns. (If you didn't get there here are some pictures from the Castleberry Hill Art Stroll last Friday.
This is one of our front porch concrete urns. Gordon picked it out from House Parts in 1989. It's as heavy a truck and just as pretty.
I came to urns later in my life and these are the urns that did it. Now, I'm a urn-guy and I fully support Tara's rule: "Every pot you own should be so fabulous it can remain empty. Because, of course, you will eventually want your pots empty. "Been to AW Pottery in Atlanta? It's just east of Peachtree Dekalb Airport. The've got a lot of urns. They rock pots, literally acres of pots. They have a little cart to drive you around if you need it and strong guys with fork lifts. When you visit Chamblee's Antique Row, just head south on Chamble Tucker and turn left on Cumberland Drive across the street from the airport and the CDC.
What about No Mas? (see below) Where do you shop for urns? What about concrete urns?
AW is your source for these fishheads: for fountains, downspouts, for wonderful fishy goodness.
I had to measure and sketch them.
No Mas in Castleberry Hill, Atlanta is loaded too. They have more urns from Mexico than you can possibly see in one visit.
