New Vase with Ray Guns

A preview of the latest pot. This one is big; at the moment it is about 3 feet tall so it is pretty unwieldy to work on and I have fabricated neck rests (for the pot) on the edges of the table. The pottery now looks like it has been prepared for a sleepwalker to turn up and knock around without fear of harming. I have dinged so many big pots on the corners and edges of tables and so this is my solution. There are no towels or tea cloths in the house now though.

As you see I have managed to glam up my ray guns on the pot, actually painting realistic plastic and tin is quite difficult. There is a long way to go, this has been several days work so far, the most time consuming aspect is drawing them on to start with.

LOL! No bath or tea towels? Shall Hen and I bring our own for when we stay? Sounds hilarious! Kitchen towel at the ready. Mind you - you have that clever racking system in your kitchen so you can stack those plates without drying haven't you? The suspended drying rack.

Anyway - cool cool cool cool pot. It's amazing. You know it. We know it. Can't wait to see how it grows. I think you rock.
