Spike, me and a big bowl and me goofing off: the evidence

Poor Spike, SOOOO hungry for his dinner. When I loaded it I noticed the last movie I made, starring self, working on a big bowl.....

I like how Spike is helping you with the lid! He is saying "come on scoop faster"!! :o)
That big pot is big!
Love the new stuff!

Cheryl said...

Oh Spike, you are too cute! Spike helping out with the lid was so funny, what a nice helper you've got. Loved the purring too.

Hilary said...

So cute. He reminds me of my two.. always vocal.. always lending a paw.

Lori Buff said...

Goofing off, you say?

I watched Spike, twice.

The second time was to let my German Shepherd, Pilgrim, listen to Spike talkin' smack.

Thanks for letting us into your home and seeing Spike on his reality TV show. hahaha Loved how he helped Dad hold open the lid while you were loaded his dish.
Oh yeah, "A whole lotta love for that bowl"! lol :) Where is the Koolaid. Crank it up louder! Oh, lovin this post!

Bowls are never big enough-you think you've thrown a real corker....then when it has shrunk in the firing it is so disappointing!

Watch bowls appear out of nowhere is magical. Made more magical by Led Zeppelin.

Spike! What a chatterbox! Jeez.

I don't see how you can add that much water to your clay and still get it to stand up. Unless you are starting with it really firm? Or maybe it's just the clay I use... hmmm.
That's about 5-8 lbs for that bowl?
