the six year old apprentice....

You will recall Angelika and her daughter visiting my Thanksgiving open studio...and staying a few hours.  Clay was involved.  Angelika's daughter is VERY chatty and creative and intelligent and tried out the wheel.  The family speaks German and English equally, and when her mother asked what she was throwing there was a long string of German, the last word of which was a very clear "BLOB".  She had thrown a blob, which is clear in any language. One of her four blobs turns out to be a wolverine, which was good for dipping in red glaze....
I also have some underglaze chalk and paints and the 2 of them were over yesterday decorating...Angelika herself draws stunningly wonderful dragons, and did so on some tiles...hope they come out and maybe next time I should give her a bowl or something to decorate...

How sweet. Maybe some collaboration is in your future?

How sweet! They will have fond memories of the time spent in your studio.
