the wife tells me: "post the hippo!"



I tell the wife, with some excitement and enthusiasm: "I have something else wonderful to post Wednesday, but I made my first ever hippo bank!  I make elephant banks, penguin, dog, etc, AND make hippo bowls and sugar bowls, but never made a bank before!" and she is like
"but that sounds exciting, post the hippo!" So I am, freshly made and drying.  With a doodle of it!
Have an awesome Wednesday!

That is, without a doubt, the hippest, happiest hippo I have ever seen!

hippo-pots! If you own one is it a 'hippo-pot-a-mine"? Great work!

I am loving the swirls and curls on the pots. Handles and decorations. Hippo nice and fat for a bank.
