If you’ve ever seen Jane Graber’s display at a miniature show you know the word ‘Gallery’ is a perfect description. Jane’s display looks a bit like a bookcase on who’s shelves are set up the most visually enticing little scenes. Pieces of rustic furniture (also for sale) provide the backdrop for arrangements of her wonderful stoneware and redware pottery.

A couple of shows back I discovered a couple of barber’s bowls on her table, a little excess production from a special request she’d been working on. If you’re lucky, she’ll have some of her beautiful salt-glazed pieces available, or even a few Arts and Crafts style vases and bowls in lovely shades of green.
