dreaming of pots and Mickey returns...

You will recall that yesterday I showed pictures of Mickey the mouse, whom I had trapped and released across the river.  Well, either he somehow made it all the way back across the river OR, more likely, one of his numerous cousins moved in last night…either Spike or me is gonna catch his ass, believe me….

I awoke just now having had a dream where I lazily planned an entry, I was allowed one, to a pottery competition with the winner being awarded a fabulous fellowship, and I was realizing my entry was due in front of the judges Monday. Except I either spaced on the calendar OR they arrived early, because here they were….and my entry, which I was still planning, was NOT on display, so I was running to my studio, telling them to wait, and trying to decide on the fly what pot I already had that would work (jar pictured here!).  And so I awoke.  But before I did, I had imagined making a piece that I have never made before, and so I doodled it out and will make it today :)

Those are some sweet little jars!
It is mouse season... I am sure we will be dealing with them soon.
