chop chop and kitten Le Blob






(pottery in process by Gary Rith)

So, I was asking myself, "what happens if you chop our the middle on a round pot and make a wide oval???" and as you saw a few days ago, the first one, a teapot looked TRES GOOD. I like this mug here but REALLY like what this vase became, a really pretty flared out oval.
It is kinda tricky hacking the middle out of a piece, because it has to be still a little soft, but you need it stand up firm....well, tis fun actually. And esp. fun to try new forms.
Here is me and our fat old kitten.


(Emily, our chubby 15 year old kitten--she is cross eyed and not terribly smart either, but super cuddly and sweet)

Boy, that tall one would hold just the right amount of beer, eh?

Kitty, kitty! Look at the little-wittle kitty-tat! Adorable!

Great demo and great pots. Not many kitties will let you pet their stomach without scratching, she looks so calm. Love your top header with the before and after glazed.

Emily has been treated like a ragdoll since she was a wee little thing, and is used to it!!!
