THING ONE and THING TWO and the creative process....


Penny is like, all crazy ninja all over Spike. You'll see more of that below, she was in a MOOD yesterday...
anyway.
There is a certain favorite book of mine, let's call it the Cat in the H#t, and it has a fish in a teapot, which I have always thought hilarious. And as a potter, you're like "I wanna make that!" and so finally yesterday I made 2, one stand alone fish in a teapot, one for a wall plaque. Super good!

Love the Penny, Spike, Buster photos, splendid. Love Penny's trying to dominate Spike, Good luck Penny, Spike seems unmoved by your endeavors.

When I was little I was always nervous that the little fish was out of water for too long and was in danger! Sigh.
