OK, showed you this piece when I was making it, now it has been glaze fired with its monkeys, and it's little brothers on the bowl and cup. Detail isn't terrific here, but you get the idea. The thing is, we have a special exhibit starting Nov 1 at a place called 'Smart Monkey Cafe', and so I made some monkeys for the first time in a year, to go on pots. I hadn't made them peeling bananas before, but heck, its cute. Apparently, and this is important around a place like Ithaca, monkeys given an organic banana and a regular store banana will always eat the organic. And they eat the organic banana, peel and all. If they are only offered a regular banana, they peel it first. What exactly are they smelling from those pesticides and whatnot? Anyway, that is the premise behind Smart Monkey Cafe, and more on that exhibit when we get it hung, but my pieces look good. Our traveling show goes to Starbucks this winter, and no matter what you think of them, Starbucks is a place that should be able to sell my work, therefore I can buy groceries and catfood.
