game of cat and mouse.....

(new pots by Gary Rith)

I was thinking it would be amusing for the cup and bowl to have a mouse inside...and a watchful cat OUTSIDE, right?

In other news, I finally settled on five cups for the first of 2 entries in cup competitions.  We'll see if I make this one, it is a HUGE field.  I think one or 2 have a pretty good chance of winning a spot though..... the second cup competition is a little bit more local and ALSO has a steep entry fee.  That makes a much smaller field, but these same five will go for that one too...

Have an awesome Thursday!

Nice cups, good luck.

I have a problem with cup shows that have a huge entrance fee, especially if they aren’t local. Between the entrance fee, shipping, and commission the artist makes nothing. Yes, you get a line item on your resume and the recognition but no food on the table.

I really hope it works out well for you.

THose are a great cross section of your styles/animals. Good choices. I love the cat and mouse! It's a good idea.

Those cups are so fun! Around here, our cats hunt for lizards.
