WWGLSD*: NINJA edition....




(pottery by Gary Rith)
I unload a bunch of freshly fired pots from the kiln, its all looking gorgeous, and I notice the wife is dressed as one of my favorite glaze schemes, blue and spring green, and so I am like
"hold these and hold still"
In other news, those cookie jars are bigger than my head.

"My daughter is getting married next month!!! We need a very big cookie jar for guests to dump cash into at the reception, and then after the wedding they can use it in the kitchen as a...cookie jar!". This is like, a last minute EMERGENCY, so I am on it right away. I made the one on the left and was super pleased, then made a simpler one. They will be black etc :)

OK, but earlier, Georges is like, all sneaky, and JUMPS on Spike's back and tries out some NINJA moves on Spike, who kicks Georges azz. *DO NOT DO What Georges Le Soq would do.

Man, I wish I'd gotten a big pot of cash at my wedding. Or a big pot of cookies for that matter. Poor Georges. Nice pic of the Misses with the bowls.

I love the cookie jars! I will send my bride-to-be daughter over to have a look-see and pick. Also? You should know that I told my daughter and the groom-to-be that when one of them predeceases the other, the surviving spouse could use the "honeymoon pot turned cookie jar" as an urn. Heh. I'm a horrible mother, I know. But a great potter customer, yes?

Here, that cash in a jar or box for the newlyweds is called "chinchulé. Can't have the reception without the chinchulé container! Of course, they pin money on the clothes of the newlyweds during their first dance also. (newlyweds here make out in the cash department!)

Those are some big cookie jars! Lots of money, lots of cookies.

I think Spike is in love.
