Oooh, i never did post the finished catfish. But anyway, i am so happy with my latest, cellar-inspired piece!!!! Happy Happy Happy.

Remember this IOTD Abrus?

I printed it off and kept it in my locker for a year and a half, and now....

on my lawn and then on my wall. the "eyes" are hollow complete "eggs" and are not connected to the main pod so wobble if touched

so pleased, can't believe it worked. I started it in June

I was wondering if you were going to hang it, or put it on a flat surface. I think hanging looks best, besides you have a dearth of empty flat surfaces.

I have plenty of empty flat surfaces... they're just all vertical ones! We have no pictures up, this is only the second of my pieces we've actually gotten around to hanging (two of Hebe's are up too). but we are learning the lesson,-do it straightaway or it never gets done

That is really cool. It looks like an angry Maori Tiki-face, or maybe a butterfly on steroids.
Monster, you are really clever.

Hey, could you do a foam-rubber face mask version of it as a halloween costume?

i could... but apparently orders are already in for a roman centurion, a dogfighter (airforce style) and a gypsy fortune teller

Monnie that's magical, I love it.
Seeing as you're taking Halloween orders, can you make something for Diz too? I'll take him out begging, sorry trick or treating... I'm thinking an FSM? Sopmething to express his inner spirituality.

I made a mug today.
I acknowledge I am never going to set the pottery world on fire, unless it's a kiln accident. But I made it for Mum, even though she has tiny mugfuls of herbal tea and it ended up... well, big.

But on the bottom I scratched FC 17/09/09. For Fuck Cancer, natch.
Even if it just ends up storing pens I know she'll keep it.

Paging Freud

I had to re-read that last sentence because the first time I read:

When Mum had her first sip of cocktail in Harvey Nicks she came over all moany.
I said, "MUM! I think I just saw your sex face!" She's the Friends fan, not me, so it was calculated to make her snort with laughter.

But she one-upped me nicely, saying, "I don't think your Dad remembers what that looks like it's been so long! Oh sorry, too much information?"

So on balance, I think she'd prefer the mug

It takes a while for things to get fired and then glazed and then fired again...
So this was what I was playing with before I even knew Mum was host to teh cancer.

Okay, I took photos in lamplight. But it's hardly high-grade ceramics.
The lip of the bowl has a leaf design. It might not come out as well in the pic. It's raised, and IMO quite cool (it was my pottery teacher's suggestion.)

She said, "You seem to have a talent when choosing your glazes!" It's called dumb luck, but I've loved both bowls I've made. Fingers crossed for the next 3 pieces - Mum's mug and two tiny primative-style cats (where primative means no real talent.)

Second pic is of course to show how tiny the dish really is.

I do love it and can't stop touching it. I can totally see why this is offered as occupational therapy.

Wow. That's cool looking. I like the mottled pattern, or whatever you would call it.
