Variations of the vase above are my favorite thing to make (or if you ask me at this moment, my favorite...might change later :) I always make them in greens, sometimes with grooves all the way down, sometimes fatter, thinner or taller. This one seems esp. schweet, to my eyes :)
It is a seemingly ideal shape for a bottle/vase, and yes, I know my classical Korean and far eastern pottery shapes, my version sure IS based on that ideal....
Speaking of ideal tortillas? Huh?
OK, more tortilla research yesterday, nearly perfect...but I wonder if just one more change will make my recipe MORE nearly perfect...maybe lunch today I whip up another experiment...then maybe share it with you, eh?
I dreamt that I was teaching again, with the people I taught with for real...and we were on a bike trip through the halls... have a great Wednesday :)
