le pots




(by Gary Rith)
BTW, I am kind of digging the new color schemes here, how about you?
My pal Michelle from BC, Canada's left coast, said 'hey, what if a mug had a BIG animal, and the tail became the handle?'. I thought about it, and loving zebras as I do, thought I would try this--where the handle becomes the zebra body. I would guess that there are many more zebras in my near future.
Plus some entirely zebraless dishes!
DREAMT, as a person does, of the little hamster, in brief, as usual. It had some bird seed (what the heck do hamsters eat? a carrot, a pepper slice? do they eat bird seed? I guess the one in my dreams does). It was very cutely holding a large sunflower seed in its paw--that's it. The hamster report: briefly sighted.
Also dreamt that I was over at the house of a bunch of hockey players and we were eating bowl after bowl of cereal....I don't eat cereal in real life. Well, Puffins sometimes.
Frankly, it was a great weekend, and even self-employed work at home guys grumble on a Monday morning....

Hamsters love seeds. No wonder the dream hamster was eating a sunflower seed!

Nice zebra handle.

Mondays and Mornings ~ my view is akin to Garfield, I just don't like them. But I love the blue dishes and the zebra handle!

Love the new colors, real eye catching.

I have always loved zebras -something about that high contrast of stripes. There is a ranch in Cambria which has zebras grazing with cows (what a sight). I took a photo, but they were too far away to show much.

Is that an underglaze for stripes and do you use a resist over them and then glaze? I am glazing my cheese dishes today and already put on my underglaze and will be using wax resist on top of the lettering I hope it works.
