BE imaginative

Dreamt that I was kidnapped with another person by Clint Eastwood who had taken a van and put in a prison cage but made it comfortable enough and his point was, I just need something from somebody, sorry to have nabbed you, you won't get touched or hurt, but I need to negotiate. Clint is a nice guy, even if he has snatched you off the street.
I have loads of fun and interesting dreams. I am very imaginative, waking and sleeping (beneath that mild exterior lurks !!!!!) and I think about how some potters produce a certain series of identical pieces, which isn't what I do. I like to try different ideas and see where they might go. Not all are good ideas, but I push it.
Here is a group of mug shapes I am fiddling with. I like the black, blue and red most of this little gang :)


You start wondering what 1990's nostalgia will look like, and it will involve Elastica.

Well now, you KNOW what color I like the best, eh Gary! lol.

That light green one over there is a beautiful shade.

I like the green color but the shape of the red one best!

What you have there, senor, is a POSSE of pots.

I've been sipping camomile and lavendar tea out of my little mug with the little doggie on the handle. It makes me very happy...

I love Clint Eastwood. I always knew he was nice.
I dreamt about laundry. and monkies in my pool. Your dreams are better than mine.
I love the black mug!!!!

Jay said...

I never really thought of Clint as being nice when he kidnapped people. He seems much more ruthless. ;-)

Lori Buff said...

Clint is probably only nice to nice people, or he wanted one of those mugs.

Cheryl said...

I like each one of the mugs, maybe the red colored one a wee bit more.

Liz said...

they are very yummy mugs, Though I think the light green one might pose a problem getting the very last drop of coffee out of the mug. I love the blue one! and the black is really classy looking.
I covet your elephant mugs, they make me smile.
