Shhhh, don't scare them. . .

I spotted these wee monkeys having a little huddle this morning when I got to work. I obviously caught them unawares I wonder what they were planning. The lesser trailed salt pigs, they’re rare around these parts.

Crazy plate, I really enjoyed decorating that this morning. This afternoon I met with a great lady from the Cultural Enterprise Office which is the organisation in Glasgow that we have lost our lovely Helen to. It was a pretty informative meeting, I always find it useful to discuss ideas with someone, a sounding block you know.
I had some sad news this morning that a friend of mine had just died. He wasn’t someone that I knew overly well but I am friends with him and his lovely wife because of our mutual slipware obsession. He has been very ill for a while but it is still very sad. I was hoping that I would have gotten the kiln built in time for him to come and see it but I have been too slow it seems and for that I am sorry.
Paul is due home tonight he’s been away in France for a few days another spy mission I assume, it’s a hard life. I’ve been baking chocolate brownies for him but I had a brownie mix : baking tin ratio problem, too much mix which really isn’t bad a problem of course but set me in a tizz trying to find something else to grease and fill with chocolate goo.

    no no no don’t be scared, they’re gentle creatures really, they just don’t like being surprised and they’re not big on cameras. I had to sneak that photo before they noticed me they’re very shy creatures. Once their plumage is developed they become much more confident.

    Great post humour, compassion, news & food. Don’t beat yourself up about the kiln – you are a busy lady – your friends gained great pleasure from your slipware. We are not in a dissimilar situation and I know my wife looks at your work daily and other potters and admires the skill / visual impact / beauty – often it sets the tone for the day by just handling the work.

  7. Those clay monkeys can be tricky, pigs or otherwise. I know a fellow who apparently has a whole dojo full. That plate is sweet as molasses! It is very energetic and lively. Makes me wish spring were here.
