Wonderful trip to the UK. Great students and extraordinary performances. I wish I could go back. Richard III and King Lear beckon. But, alas I am prepping my seminar for the fall and making mugs. This is the newest one. I have wanted a fox for a while but I'm a bit stymied by fur. Last week while I was drinking coffee on the steps a grey fox came and sat beside me. We watched the snowshoe hares cavorting--though I suspect with different intentions. I am, afterall, a vegetarian.
Here all all 3 of the new designs the fox in the center wraps around and is stalking a bunny (near the handle). Then the rat. I am thinkng neither Beatrix Potter nor Willard, more Rats of Nymh.
I got another shipment of clay last week The price has gone up again to $55 (five years ago it was $25). I showed the supply shop my mugs. They have been in the business for over 50 years and said I should be charging $50-60/mug. Well, I'm not doing that just yet. Still, quite the comppliment.
The kiln should go up this weekend with an unloading maybe Tuesday
