emerald flowers on Teapot Tuesday…..

Oh yes, I love the greens….this is a deep jade green you see me use all the time, which I call emerald.  Looks good with the flower shape, hmm?

If you told me my work was deeply influenced by eastern pottery these days you would not be wrong…but as I say, it is a return to where I started in my training 33 years ago….

Dreams:  a weird but triumphant dream late last night.  I was asked to help find a small and sickly child.  He had run off because he didn't like taking his medications and there were woods everywhere.  I was wandering and Cassie, the  yappy snappy dog my neighbors have, was there barking…I followed, and Lassie-style, she led me to a small cave where he was hiding.  Gary saves the day…thanks to a dog..Hollywood style!

Have an awesome Tuesday!
