The state or quality of being infinite.”the infinity of space.”

Shelley My Love

“I have drunken deep of joy,

And I will taste no other wine tonight.”

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Lyrics

Shelly my love

I only long to be where you are

Shelly my love

Now and forevermore

Shelly my love

When I see you I catch fire

And soon I’m all aflame

I feel it start

Whenever you call my name

All around I feel a passion

That thrills my very soul

I put it down

To that I love you so

Shelly my love

I only long to be where you are

Shelly my love

Now and forevermore

Shelly my love

Oh Shelly my love

All around I feel a passion

That thrills my very soul

I put it down

To that I love you so

Oh Shelly my love

Dragoon

The Dragoons originally referred to a class of mounted infantry, who used horses for mobility but dismounted to fight on foot.

From the early 18th century onward, dragoons were increasingly employed as conventional light or medium cavalry, trained for combat with swords from horseback.

Faience

Boch Frères Keramis pottery from La Louvière Belgium. The is a Fermes Decoration which translates from French to “Green farms.” The green is very warm, subtle shades with scenes of people, sky and windmills.

This one is Transfer ware Bowl that dates back to about 1880 and it still retains it’s lustre; no cracks, no chips. Wonderfully kept pieces of pottery don’t you think? They are still for sale if you can find them. We found three in Paris. Mint.

Boch Keramis began making pots between 1844 and 1846 created Bayern landscapes and views of the Rhine, genre scenes, decors inspired by the Orient, the decor engravings on these plates, applied by chisel and stamp.

The very first decors were monochrome, mostly in bleu or black impression, and have a factory stamp with large banner in general, and are sometimes produced in sister factories. Sometimes they are bicolour, black for the centre decoration and another colour for the border decoration.

Some of these decors are printed in a slightly blurred way for the English and American for those who love this kind of illustrations.

Around 1860 the production of polychrome pieces starts with accents above or underneath the glazing, sometimes the same decors are produced in monochrome and in polychrome.

The romantic scenes were farms, city views, the saints with their attributes, Napoleons battles, humorist scenes and the height’s of travelling by railway.

But these are my favourites here by far; for the faience is in the amazing glazing.

Art Carved

What is the condition that distinguishes us from animal, plant and from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death.

Every human story is a life written and represented; and from there we exist. There are the experiences where we feel real emotion; just as I know emotion is not a fictional pseudonym.

We seek to dream and dream about the things we seek; of a spiritual reality and a destiny greater than the merely mortal.

What are those things that are more than merely mortal? The author with a prose; the lecturer with an intended set of temporal actions to achieve an objective, the painter with oil and canvas; to that, it is their life, of their work and to its end is their purpose.

Reflecting about what we see and what it

creates within us is what gives us self worth; an appreciation for the things that surround us.

Maybe it allows us to inspired, to be motivated. Could it be that dependence on the sense of this desire of fulfilment is what gives us this sense of value to our life?

Is it this philosophy or is the aesthetics that answers the questions to these principles that gives beauty to these arts; to writing, to critical thinking, to language, thought, the appreciation of an old Dutch painting; and perhaps even to an angel face carved in wood from the 18th Century.

Me and Jim found him in a market together near the Louvre.

I don’t maybe, but I think things like this old Wood face is the aesthetics; in the beautiful philosophy when I look into the face of an art carved angel.

Old Lustre Still

Early possible Société Céramique made some history in Maestrich.

Then Petrus Regout came along and made Lustre Soup bowls out of clay, dipped them in glaze and named it pottery in the Goudkust pattern I do believe. Earth tone was his favourite. Possibly an early Alpine pattern.

This particular bowl was loved a very long time. Someone’s favourite noodle bowl no doubt. As it appears has gone through many years of good service. It’s the oldest bowl I’ve ever seen. It’s a life that has been very useful. Survived longer than many.

Description looks Moroccan. Old Orange rusty and brown.

Flowers, leaves, geometric lines, swirls and acorns in earth tones come into mind. Throw some chilli and paprika in.

Made in Belgium.

Good to ok condition; He’s not perfect, but no chips except for the bit inside, where it’s discoloured. Perhaps a child nicked it with a spoon once when told to finish the porridge inside.

There are two hairline cracks; one on the base inside and one on the inside top. Looks like it was repaired.

There is graininess and cracklings inside. Outside some of the lustre has been lost; there some of its colour has faded near the base.

It must be hard to be the only one left around. All the others are gone now.

Found this in old lovey bowl in Paris last year. Montmartre to be exact. I was going to keep it, but maybe it belongs in a museum.

The age may be great, but true beauty never fades. The old Lustre is there. I guess even old pots have a life.
