Just wanted to add that my wife LOVED her pottery gift when she opened it last night. Is it the height of art? Surely not, but the look on her face when she read the history and found out it was from Sweden was unforgettable. I had forgotten that on her Swedish side, her ancestors settled in Red Wing, MN when they came to the states and worked the pottery/clay mines including a tragic accident to her great (great) grandfather. We have one of the Red Wing cookie jars out on the counter. Many times when I buy her gifts of "art" sometimes it seems that I enjoy it more than she, that was not the case this time and it felt great. Thought I'd share.
