fat cats....

(pottery by Gary Rith)
My big kiln has been dead for a week, and I have replaced everything I can think of with new parts and STILL, nothing. I am at the HAIL MARY point here: a kiln repair guy is (hopefully) coming over this am. If he cannot get it going I may drive 100 + miles and buy a new kiln. I have so much stuff needs firing.
HOWEVER, my baby kiln, the interior of which could hold a pair of shoes, is working nicely and look what just came out, these cats make me soooo happy. Emily and Spike and their nasty canned food and cat litter and vet bills are tax deductions. They are my, um, assistants and um, models....

That's clever. Cat models. :D

That really is cute Gary.
Good luck with your kiln situation.

Lori Buff said...

Very cute jar, it's obvious that the models were used.

Unknown said...

Those are very cute assistants, love the jar!
Good luck with the kiln.

Jill Brown said...

Wow! The little cats look just like the real cats! Well done Gary! :)

Susan Greene said...

Would love to purchase the jar, Gary, but every time you make a kitty I love, you love it too and you keep it. ;) If the kitty is up for sale, please let me know on the wildrun blog. Keep on littering! (that's a cat joke).
