le zebra teapot and sugar bowl!



(Gary Rith making pots)
Soooooo, Friday was MOST awesome.
I shipped a box to WALES, United Kingdom, an order to Old Grey Poet, which Kate was sending to him, how cool is that? I cleaned the cat box and blogged, per usual but then had a DATE with the wife late in the afternoon at the hippie cafe! (usually you hear me call it the hippie bakery, but Friday? We went into the CAFE side. Much fancier (NOT) I love dates with the wife, although my allowance can only afford so much, but I had a COUPON!!!!! (Yes, I use coupons when I go on dates, doesn't everybody?)
But, before that I had spent a super pleasant afternoon fiddling with zebras and all my pals at the Cornell ceramics studio. The place was absolutely packed. When I was in college, everybody went to the pottery studio on Friday afternoon to warm up for the weekend and listen to the Grateful Dead (and smoke herb--but not me, no no!), but yesterday, as it had been in college, everybody just as quickly clears out by 5 to go out drinking. Well anyway. Big adventures today plus somebody from Cleveland called and wants to visit the studio (? I am very famous in Cleveland?). More later....

I LOVE the Zebras. They are AMAZING! And we use coupons on dates too... I don't know why it's considered bad... it saves money, baby!

Have you ever thought of making the animals a bit bigger and on the side of your mug (kinda like your ghost mug) and then making the tail of the animal look like the handle? I think that would be cute. :)

I have been thinking esp. that a zebra and a mug handle must go together somehow....
