pottery plane with a piggy!

You will hear me recall seeing Pinnocchio (sp.???) when I was 5 and I wanted to be Gepetto!  The guy who made toys!  So, you know, you could say that guides my daily work, putting a little pig on a mug, for example, or a hippo with a things added to useful things.

2 weeks ago I showed pictures of a couple airplanes I was making.  I just woke up one day wanting to make airplanes on the wheel!  You have seen me make robots,  cars and rockets, and I figured I could do an airplane.  I worried that they would crack and warp in the firing but the cup I showed yesterday fired fine so I chanced this plane....and I am SO PLEASED.

I was telling the wife "there will be these 2 elderly women at a fair one Sunday morning, on their way home from church and...."
the wife adds "they will pick up the plane and say 'that's different...what do you DO WITH IT?' "
and I reply "well, you don't do ANYthing with it, it just sits there, looking cute, gathering dust...."

Whoa, update:  my buddy Armin is like "PIGS CAN FLY!" and I am like "BRILLIANT!"

Have a great Sunday yerself :)
