Baby, Baby, Baby
Looking at these past few pieces you would probably think I was pregnant. Nope. Not a chance. Not unless pigs fly. I have no freakin' idea why I've done baby bumps and babies. (Piece shown above is unfired.) I'm desperately try to get my head in a different place and I think it's going to be ... boats. Below is a copper one I made years ago, when I was doing metal stuff.
Now I think I want to try ceramic boats. We'll see. When I first started in ceramics many years back I took two workshops from Debra Fritts - a great instruction and motivator. She traded me some small ceramic birds for one of my copper boats. The piece she made (image below) was called "Tall Tales" -- what a creative use of a boat! I am humbled.
