Yes - I know I've been remiss, and haven't posted for three weeks. I've been busy - and tired.
I'm back to work full time, and finding that I have been tired in the evenings. Most evenings I come home and sleep for a few hours to regain my strength.
As well, most of you don't know that I am also a potter. I have 2 major sales coming up in the end of April, so, I have been spending a lot of time at the wheel, coupled with additional time in the carving stages.
I've been asked by several people, to do something along the sheep line in pottery.
Now - I'm not a hand builder (that is - I throw my pottery on the wheel, as apposed to rolling and molding it by hand). Last week - I decided to give this a try, and came up with this little fella here:
In perspective - he's about 3" high and 4" long. I was rather pleased with this effort.
Next week, he will be bisque fired, then glazed, and then fired again.
I will post pictures when he is complete in a few weeks.
The down side of pottery - you can't make just one. Word is out, and several of the local shepherds have asked for a sheep - so, I'd better get to work and make some more.
Before I go - a quick Johnny update.
Seems you have to watch where you lay your head around here. Johnny likes to hide under any pillow he can find (I was getting ready to change the bed here) - when you walk by - the one paw comes out to get you! When he's not eating or sleeping - he's tearing around the house like a banshee Oh wait - that's what cats are all about. John is growing - and he fits in quite well here with the other cats. Even though he only has 3 legs - he keeps up quite well.
Until next time.
