Tree stumps, Heartwood and a Moustache

"Life is like a moustache.  It can be wonderful or terrible.  But it always tickles."  
~Nora Roberts
This mug and its companions are in the Pence Gallery in Davis for the California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art this weekend and through May.

On the tips of her fingers

I am liking this piece more and more---although very simple and plain---very quiet feeling with leaves on her fingertips. I tend to want or feel the need to put more and more stuff on pieces...but decided to do a portrait bust that elicits the unspoken inner nature. The leaves are made from porcelain clay wedged with some green mason stain...keep leafy fingertips crossed she will come out of the kiln whole.
