disgraphia






(pencil guys and pots by Gary Rith)
I have crummy handwriting, and do better with a pencil, but who cares? I type my life away. BUT, the world needs cute little pencil guys, and I am the one make them, athough I am wondering why there aren't any elephants here. So, I make the usual little animal, with a hole under, and then perform simple surgery on a pencil, (an eraserendectomy) add a little glue to the animal's bottom, and tada, fantastic writing implement. I started thinking I need a good way to display, so this bottom pic of the enclosed dome thing will have holes added on top for use as a display pot.
ALSO, I do not especially like brown glazes, but mine is kinda fun, speckly and whatnot, and I have plenty of it, so you also see here a little pot with blue and brown--nice combo, I think.

greg said...

but seriously, how is the display you're making tacky? {scratching head}

Maggie said...

I would say what I think the display pot looks like to me but I'm pretty sure it would get me booted off comments forever...

gr said...

what a very active peanuts gallery this has become...

Maggie said...

Sorry Gary, but hey I think once its finished a) it won't remind me of what it reminds me of and b) it will look great...
