Sore hand.

Yesterday I was a carving machine. This morning I woke up with a sore forearm...I made a ton...well, a bunch...of owl creamers, a few "stump" jars to match and a pair of TALL owl vases. I plan on making at LEAST 2 more of the owl vases. I need 2 to send out to a couple of galleries and I'd like to have some back-ups and maybe one for my Etsy shop. I also made one of these guys!
And the menagerie grows... I'm going to make a few more penguins in different sizes. They look cute all sitting together.

I tried to take the day off today. It's still really hard to make my mind shut everything out. I plan on doing a bit of drawing later. I guess that football game is on now. I'm so happy we don't have TV. I didn't even realize the super bowl was going on until I was at the gym on Friday. I've never watched one in my life, why start now. Hmm. Anyway. I have a really good idea for a salt and pepper set and I'd like to try it out tomorrow. I just need to draw it out a few more times...

And now I leave you with Dudley in the snow...eating a branch from our deceased Christmas tree. It's a little blurry. I took it from the porch.

Your work is so beautiful!!
I can't believe Dudley will stay out in the snow! Otis starts lifting his paws up because they get cold..... he's such a baby!

He loves the snow. Especially catching snowballs in his mouth. This last storm did bother his paws because of the layer of ice on the snow. I'd love to get him boots but I think he'd do the same thing Otis did in his boots!

The Super Bowl is great if you're looking to see crowds of people (not to mention the millions at home) co-opting others' athletic success. That, or if you're looking to be told what your next luxury SUV purchase will be.

A question: what do you do with the shavings? Are they salvageable?

Yup. I recycle all the mixed bits and use it to make more black slip or gray porcelain.
