The Stoneware Jug collects 13 comics-poems (including Whiz), that focus on the seasonal, mundane-but-transcendent experiences of domestic life: baking, laundry, ice.
Stefan Lorenzutti is an American poet living with his family in a small house in the mountains of Poland, from which he and his wife run their Bored Wolves publishing imprint. From my first encounter, I was enchanted with their books– simple, beautiful, elegant, featuring accessible, down-to-earth poetry. A few years ago, Stefan and I collaborated on a print called “Whiz,” in which I adapted a short poem of his into comics form. It worked so well, we decided to do it twelve more times! —John Porcellino
