dogs in the wilds....

We have a nice fenced in yard, useful for dogs when you live on a busy roadway.
I was walking into the library Saturday and the idea pops into my head, doodled on paper below. Beagle peeking out from rocks or leaves atop a teapot, with all the bells and whistles.
I get home and start to make it, and the wife comes into the studio with a neighbor, which really surprised me...and I bump the thing and it collapses partly (that never happens!)...but I get it right again. Next day I accidentally push a hole through the bottom, that never happens! And I put it all together and I am very pleased with how it looks...although it may crack. Looks super cool, i should make another....

That IS cool! Another great piece. Hope it doesn't crack.

Look upon it as a trial run!
No point in being over precious, when it could waste kiln space, which costs.

I like Dog Henge!!

Could the neighbor be a potter too?? Messing you up like that? ;)
Looks very very cute though...hope it doesn't crack!
