of GODZILLA dragons and GINORMOUS cats....

You will recall, last week Pete was like "can you shape a mug into a cat???" and I tried several ideas. Here are the first! I made a puppy too, wicked cute eh???? I am making more of a different type too, more on that Friday morning,,,,, (THANK YOU PETE! and today I am gonna try to make tails for handles....)

Kasey was like, with pictures "I cut a circle out of bread and made my cat wear it!" and meanwhile, on Jezebel we find that food on your pet is a big new deal, and bread on your cat an especially big deal, as Kasey did....

SOOOoooooo as you might imagine, I wanted to try something like that with my huge cat Spike, and being creative, I was gonna try a bagel. Did NOT work too well, actually.......

FINALLY, below you see the wee wall sculpture I was making, of Godzilla (NOT DRAGONS no no!) and Godzilla's friend having tea...I sculpted them, but made the tiny teapot, cup and saucer on the wheel, as I would a larger teaset....YES, the cup and teapot have faces, so you can wonder if, well, they were human heads first :)

The cat bowl and mug and puppy mugs for sale now at my etsy gallery, lucky you!

You have so much talent, Gary. I like how you get new ideas from others or from something that you see and work it out so you can make a new piece of pottery.

Totally impressed with the tiny teapot and cup in the dragons' laps!
Not just funny, but extremely cool.
Keep up the good work!
