I made a truck!



Don't know why I got this idea, but I suddenly figured "hey, this is how you would make a truck!" and tires and mud flaps seemed easy, then whack a round bit square for the cab, and I was originally thinking about a tanker in back, but decided on a squared off bowl for the back, like a dump truck or pickup. I also wondered 'windows on the cab or what?' and went with 'what' and made it a sugar bowl. I think I know how I will make another one, having learned some things for this one.

A VW bug teapot?

This is a great truck. You can start incorporating transportation into some of your designs and still do animals.

OK, I think all little boys would love a cookie jar that was a truck. That would be good!Could that work, ya think?

MJ in Germany said...

Love it. You could make this into a coffee set, with the truck as the sugar bowl, towing a pitcher of milk/cream.

Matt Sutkoski said...

The truck's a really neat idea. Cool!

Ilyanna said...

thinking in a different direction -- that truck would be a fabulous plant holder, especially in the shape of a dump truck. That just makes me laugh thinking of it.
