the bunny's bottom and Missus Tastycake is caught slacking
(bunny mama and baby by Gary Rith)
I watch my beginners really pushing and pulling and wrenching their clay and generally messing things up as they learn. I tell them you have to coax the clay. Work with it. You don't force it. You pretend the clay pot is the bunny's bottom, and you push gently and firmly....
I am in some kind of bunny show soon and so I have been sitting in the warm living room sunshine making bunny sculpture.
AND Missus Tastycake is quiet upstairs studying. Or so I thought. Looks like a N-A-P to me.
