Why kittens in a studio is not a good idea!
Yesterday I got a half a day in the studio. I took Bonnie Lass, our 6 month old kitten in with me. She's been in the studio before, and was fairly well behaved other that boxing with my hanging brushes; but yesterday she found she could jump on to the wedging table and then on to the ware cart. I had put some pots that were thrown the day before, high up on the cart and out of her reach. Well, as you can see, she's now found a way to get up there and knocked over this mug. She was quickly whisked back into the house to her kitty day care center in the master bedroom, laundry room area.
It felt good to get some throwing in yesterday. Working with super soft clay I managed to throw a few plates/platters and a few more small pieces. My healing chest muscles are a bit sore this morning, but not sore enough to make me want to stop. Today probably won't be much studio time. Our son Sean, is flying in for the day, so I'm going to be prepping a nice dinner and maybe baking some bread too.
After breakfast I'll uncover the pots I threw yesterday, then start early on dinner prep. I'm making mushroom bisque, roast lamb, roasted garlic and rosemary potatoes and either green beans or a salad. I have to check the garden to see if I have enough beans.
Time for breakfast. Lots to do today.
