AND... we have a new cat in our yard! We don't believe she is feral as she looks too well taken care of, but she has a sweet face and has spent the last 2 days here (no collar and while not *afraid* she is *cautious* and backs off if we get too close.
And lastly I'm posting some pics of my dinnerware project which is still in underglazed greenware. My semi-famous person is someone who was one of the early founders of Forensic Medicine so my theme is Death, Crime, and Medicine... using the colors; black, red, and white. Since I'm a pretty practical person, I didn't want the plates, bowls, and cups to be too gruesome as I'd like them to be functional (and not gross). I thought of using fingerprints or blood splatter, but the fingerprints never came out to my liking and the blood splatter is still *up in the air*. But I did put a *gunsight* on this sample plate - both to link it to crime and add a little color. Once it's fired, I'll know if I like it... or not.
I'm planning to add a small black clay cookie in the center of the gunsight... one that looks like the outline of a human torso with holes in the head and heart areas (like at a shooting range). And then my clay sculpture that is for the centerpiece is a stack of very old medical and mystery books. This semi-famous person was influential to two crime/mystery series - Perry Mason and Murder She Wrote.
I will take some pictures of the various projects once they are finished and set up in the studio. Some are really wonderful. Mine is fairly simple. But it's still a constant learning experience for me.

We really miss you...
