What goes into a logo
Recovering from a hellacious cold yesterday, I puttered about in the studio, and checked my rather large pile of orders. There was one from myself, so I was excited to get into that one, and yes, the finished project contains the results of my runny nose, so it really is me. I have wanted to make a 3d plaque of my doodled logo, seen here to the right and below, the piggy and pot. I don't see myself as a piggy, of course, just that I make a lot of them, and simply think it is a funny logo, plus I can doodle it anytime, anywhere. So, similar to the beer blog plaque below, and representing myself, I made this guy up here. Above on the scroll will be my name, below will be 'potter'. I should mention here that I am not a small pot specialist, like some potters, but I do make micro pots pretty well. This little pot is about an inch tall, and I threw it on the wheel as I would for a larger vase, but my fingers are too big, and I used chopsticks to form it.
