Things That Are Green



Tom O'Hara inspired my mug holder. I made the chipped mug. Few handmade mugs fit the conventional car cup holder, and as Tom insists on taking my mugs to work, he made his own. Over the years I've given him many of my seconds and no one is better at breaking my pots than he is. A mug that can't survive falling from a two-story roof just won't do! To his credit, he has been keeping all the shards together for years and has one of the more famous 'morgues' of my pots in town.
Just as I was packing up to go home tonight I saw this big moth just outside the studio door. I think it's a Luna. Just a few inches off the ground....a beauty.

Not many potters have the honor of inspiring a custom-made mug holder. Loved this!
