SPIKE CHECKS IN and models in the n#de


(pottery by Gary Rith)
Got yer attention, didn't I? Like I said, fixed the kiln the other day and had a totally faboo firing. I am now cookie jar crazy(or whatever you wanna put in there) and I am making LOTS of these large shaped jars with sculptures atop the lid. They are gonna be wicked expensive because I am putting a lot of time into them. Spike modeled for this cat with the fish, as you can see, although Spike is not blue with purple spots. Plus he gets CANNED fish, which wouldn't look as funny in his paws.

Spike is a nudist.

I like how Spike is sticking his tongue out. He wants us to know he was not totally ok with this nudist thing - he was coerced. Threatened that if he didn't pose - you'd take away the tuna.

Fantastic - of course! Love the blue/green together... and the fish is incredible:-)

I just thought Spike was being a bad kitty and sticking his tongue out at you and being really sassy, because not a single ONE of those lovely cans of kitty food was open and available to him. Enough to stir up any cat's wrath!

i LOVE that photo of spike.

nudity rocks! although a rep. introduced a bill in vermont that if passed will ban nudity in this state. how crazy is that! but hopefully no one thinks it is going to go anywhere. but if it makes it out of committee perhaps spike will need to testify.

I can't believe you got Spike with his tongue extended. He is so cute.
