Ceramics a must-have in home decor By KIM COOK Associated Press Ceramics are always a great supporting player on the home dicor stage, but this season they’re grabbing more of the spotlight. Today’s ceramists are exploring creative textures and finishes, and even the mass market is offering exciting new examples of the pottery arts. From velvety soft, lacy tealight holders to chunky, colorful platters, there’s something for everyone. You can choose to feature pottery prominently or enlist it as punctuation to other colors and textures in your room. A piece with lots of pattern punch can be a conversation starter, whether it was created half a world away by a village artisan, or right in your own hometown. Ceramics also can help tie a space together, picking up elements — a knitted motif or a color, say — that appear in artwork, throw pillows or rugs elsewhere in the room. And ceramics are easy to change out when you tire of them.

Homegoods often has cool ceramics that resemble higher end versions. This spring, you’ll find a Provence-style, rustic, mustard-hued lamp base with a honeycomb embossment, an array of chic birdpatterned plates in fine china, and several color-saturated glazed vessels in deep teal or cranberry. Scandinavian design studio Ferm Living created an ethereal new collection for spring that includes matte white or terra cotta ceramic vases made of stacked spheres and polygons. A series of porcelain pieces, including a teapot and bowl, features a spear geometric in subtle organic tones of charcoal, pale pink, seafoam and curry. Susan Dwyer, a sculpture major at art school in Chicago, was inspired by the clean, minimal lines of the city’s industrial landscape to create a cool series of vessels evoking factory buildings, water towers and silos. All hand-formed, each piece has a unique organic look which is at odds with, yet complementary to, the manufactured structure it represents. Amy Adams, the brains behind

Brooklyn-based Perch studio, has designed a clever series of stacking cups with stenciled rosettes, flowers, garlands or triangles. Available in black and white or turquoise and white, these have a nice folk-arty look and would be versatile little repositories for drinks, flowers or trinkets. One of the masters of ceramic art, Jonathan Adler, showed his Carnaby collection at the recent New York International Gift Fair. Pieces include the Waves tray and Acid lamp, featuring groovy ‘70s-inspired graphics. But Adler also has done a lovely group of nature-themed pottery pieces for which he threw the prototype and Peruvian artisans created the finished product. Motifs include leaves, seed pods and barnacles. West Elm has Maria Moyer’s pretty pierced tealight holders and stunning white orbed vases, which look like they were born in some far-off galaxy. A percentage of sales of her pieces benefit Oceana, a nonprofit marine conservation group.

In this 2005 photo released by Allegany College of Maryland, people walk a labyrinth at the Allegany College of Maryland in Cumberland, Md.

Labyrinths designed for reflection By MELISSA KOSSLER DUTTON Associated Press When Carol Maurer has a lot on her plate, she finds it useful to visit the labyrinth made of river rocks at the Delaware Art Museum, in Wilmington. “It quiets my mind,” said Maurer, who lives in Hockessin, Del. “It sets the path for me so I can spiral inward.” Labyrinths, which have been constructed for thousands of years, have become a popular addition to hospitals, gardens and public institutions. With a single path in and out, labyrinths are designed to encourage reflection. They differ from mazes, which are designed as puzzles. Labyrinths have been associated with religions and cultures throughout the world. The number of labyrinths in the United States has been steadily increasing for about 15 years, said Robert Ferre, a labyrinth builder who founded Labyrinth

Enterprises. “Nowadays they’re so widespread, it’s more about how to best utilize them than what they are,” he said from San Antonio, Texas. When he started the business in 1995, churches were his primary customers. Labyrinths were an important feature of European Roman Catholic churches in the Middle Ages; walking one was a devotional activity and represented a spiritual journey. The most famous remaining labyrinth from that period is at Chartres Cathedral, near Paris. Many newer labyrinths are based on the Chartres pattern. They can be constructed of turf or stone or painted on pavement. Today, labyrinths are widely used in secular spaces too, said Maurer, who serves on the board of The Labyrinth Society, an organization dedicated to using and promoting the paths. She helped get the labyrinth built near the sculpture garden

at the Delaware Art Museum. “People are looking for ways to travel inward,” she said. “They’re trying to find a deeper connection with themselves that may be spiritual but not necessarily religious.” It’s even possible for homeowners to build labyrinths themselves in their yard, with rock, gravel or mulch, Ferre said. Plans are available online or through his company. Patricia Cadle, the oncology chaplain at N.C. Cancer Hospital in Chapel Hill, N.C., encourages patients, family members and hospital employees to walk a labyrinth. The medical facility dedicated an outdoor labyrinth in 2009, and just completed an indoor one this month (February). “It’s a great tool for meditation and relaxation,” Cadle said. “Labyrinths can help connect the mind, the body and the spirit. I think we can use that when we’re dealing with disease.”

In this image taken in Bridgton, Maine, an array of spring daffodils, tulips and grape hyacinth surround a birdbath in a garden in early summer.

Garden rooms offer variety of pleasures By ROSANNE DOMBEK For The Associated Press Now’s the perfect time for dreaming about your spring and summer garden. Gather up your seed and garden catalogs, take some notes, visit a garden center, let your imagination loose and put a plan on paper. Choosing one style, though, can be difficult. Do you want a formal garden, a cottage garden, perhaps herbs mixed in with vegetables and flowers? Will you grow only culinary herbs, or a combination of culinary, aromatic and decorative? Well, why not a little of them all? Consider planting a number of smaller, themed gardens. I did that at my home in Maine, and came to see each

one as a room:

••• There was a beautiful knot bench in the TEA GARDEN where I grew chamomile, lemon thyme, sage, yarrow, lemon balm, roses, calendula, bee balm, mint, lemon verbena and several scented geraniums. The bees loved this garden, and it was a great stress-reliever to sit on the bench in the warm sun and listen to the buzz of their activity, inhale the fragrances, and enjoy the garden’s peace and beauty. In the middle of winter, it was possible to sit and recall the warmer days of summer; the bee balm seed heads were as fragrant then as in midsummer, and you had only to crush one to be taken back. ••• The CULINARY GARDEN was cir-

cular with a birdbath in the center. The walks around the beds were of crushed rock, and bricks outlined the circular shape. In the winter, the snow would melt off the rocks first and leave the herb beds covered, making an interesting pattern. I grew tarragon, marjoram, curled onion, chives, sage, winter savory, Welsh bunching onion, garlic chives, thyme, oregano, nasturtium, parsley, coriander, chervil, basil and borage here. It was my habit to pick a bouquet of these herbs to chop and toss into a salad. If there were any left over, I would put them in a basket to dry for winter use, or freeze them in a little water to add to a winter soup. As soon as the snow melted, the chives and bunching onions were there to harvest for the first taste of spring. Continued on Page 30


30 - Madison County Homes - April, 2012 - TheIntelligencer.com

Rooms Continued from Page 29 The blue jays and mourning doves that frequented the birdbath were great company on an afternoon spent cultivating and harvesting. ••• The ROSE GARDEN was next; it had two entrance trellises and a third trellis with a bench underneath. In the beginning, I planted 14 old-fashioned roses, but some didn’t survive the cold winter. I replaced them with the more vigorous rugosa rose. This garden was also circular, but with a larger center then the culinary garden. I edged the center with sweet alyssum; placed a lovely old clay pot in the middle filled with scented geraniums; then planted double pink petunias around it. The effect was of a huge tussie mussie. I planted creeping thyme between the bricks in the path. The aroma was out of this world. When the thyme was in bloom, the bees were busy at the blossoms so it was necessary to step carefully. The trellises made inter-

esting shadows in the snow for a pleasing winter effect. Garden structures can be important for a winter garden. ••• The next garden was the EVERLASTING GARDEN, where I planted herbs and flowers that dry for decorative use: liatris, strawflowers, statice, echinops, xeranthemum, acroclinium, feverfew and salvia horminium, to name a few. Everlastings are generally easy to grow, and in most cases the annuals can withstand a light frost. I planted this garden first in the spring and simply covered the rows with Remay cloth until the days became warmer. A huge number of strawflowers can be harvested from just a dozen plants; I picked them every sunny day. This garden provided me with bouquets to carry to friends, fresh flowers in summer and dried bouquets in the winter. ••• I had never heard of a LIBATION GARDEN until one day I realized I had inadvertently planted hops, grapes and elderberries together in one corner of the main garden, and that all are used to make alcoholic drinks. I decided to expand on the idea, did some research and discovered that heathers were once

used as a substitute for hops in making beer. So I added heathers to this garden. I planted sweet woodruff for May wine, and a quince bush, rose bush, mint, wormwood and lemon balm for making cordials. A friend would occasionally harvest hops for beer, but I didn’t try it. I did, however, harvest the hop cones each year for use in sleep pillows, an old-time remedy for insomnia. And the heathers were a marvelous addition for year-round pleasure. The reds, greens and golds of the leaves and the pink, rose and white flowers make a garden tapestry to be enjoyed even on a winter walk. I harvested bunches to use in wreaths and winter bouquets. There was a low bench in this garden that was a wonderful place to hide away and sit quietly. ••• The FRAGRANT GARDEN was just what the name implies. On warm summer afternoons, its heady aroma could be overpowering. Lavender was of course a part of this garden. Old-fashioned cinnamon pinks, though not as attractive as the new hybrids, smelled beautiful. I planted several dwarf lilacs and a half dozen peonies, along with several fragrant rugosa roses and garden phlox.
