This title sound very mysterious and provocative…read on (if you dare)….

While I’m waiting for things to dry–clay, glazes and underglazes, I’ve been making medium size dogs and, yes, some tiny pieces.  Wasn’t going to do that, but with the economy, yada yada…

I’ve been calling these “Goony Birds,” and just looked up that term (the below is from Wikipedia):

Just when I thought I came up with something original!  Don’t you hate that?
Still having fun….
