Timothy Turtle is out by the pond. I made this fellow several years ago. He is the one I was not terribly satisfied with, but entered into Earthworks to get a crit from that year's juror James Lawton. I almost fell over when I heard that he had given it fourth place. He felt the successful parts outweighed the unsuccessful. I am still not comfortable with selling Timothy so he gets to sit out by the pond every year as soon as the weather warms up.
The turkeys are mating so they have been wandering in and out of the yard and woods.....
Which led to Winter's discovery of a great new activity......Rolling in Turkey Poop!
Which needless to say led to a trip to the rain closet.
Sometimes it's just better to push the towels aside and finish drying off on Aloysius!
I've been busy rolling out tiles for the stove surround and for the workshop I will be giving this summer. Pictures of tiles are about as interesting as watching grass grow so I'll leave it at that.
Oh, and a shout out to Jenny Mendes who has a studio visit in the May Ceramics monthly.
This post will also be over at Mud Colony......everyone should take a look at clay around the world.
Sunny days here in Southern New England.......I hope they are sunny wherever you read this.
As always, thanks for stopping by..............*s*
