After our floods, (I never mentioned the one that happened when the discharge hose from the washing machine was disconnected.) I have had the chore of going through several boxes that had been left on the floor. The cardboard was pretty soggy, but the contents were fine.
At the bottom of one I found this mug that I either did at Haystack in a Linda Arbuckle workshop or shortly after returning home. I know it is Linda's glaze, obviously on a terra cotta clay, but whether it's the one supplied by Haystack or mine I can't remember. It was 2002 after all!
Below are two views of the same mug. I was going through a huge Clarisse Cliffe phase. I did this design as a direct homage to her work.
On a sadder note, I was so very sorry to hear of Carrie Fisher's death. She was not only the world's princess, but a gutsy lady who carried on through all the adversities of her life.
I love the fact that the final screen image (admittedly CGI) is of her turning and when asked what the file she has been handed holds, answers, "A new hope."
2016 has been the pits, so I have decided that my words for 2017 will be that.....A NEW HOPE!
As always, thanks for stopping by..............*s*
