Above are two unfired pots I've made recently, both are made with Raku clay. Just so you know I have been working.
My classes are taught through Austin Community College and this semester the class I'm in is scheduled out at Laguna Gloria. This is a great location and, aside from being able to find a parking space, it's a heavily wooded area right on the lake where peacocks have free-range permission to roam the campus and audit any class they like. In the videos below you'll see just a few of the many I see every time I'm out there. This guy was probably waiting for someone to open the door for him and let him in the classroom.
I don't see that he has any ears or he would have obeyed me because I definitely have an authoritative and commanding voice.
Did you know peacocks came in brown and white as well as the typical blue-green? The coloring could easily be a gender thing but I'm not checking under their feathers to tell you who is what.
