the elephant mama and how do Mormons do it?
(pottery by Gary Rith)
It is perhaps well know that I like mama and baby sculptures. A beagle and her puppies, a pig and her piglets, and an elephant and little elephant. I realized the other day that you have a special opportunity with elephants---mama can pick up baby in her trunk! At least in clay, if not real life.
As for my Mormon friends, how do they do it? I have a cup of coffee at my side, I just brought the whole pot up. I suppose if you grow up without coffee you wouldn't miss it, but goodness, such a wonderful and innocent pleasure.
