elephant jar: the making of and inspiration for





(elephant pot and doodles by Gary Rith)

You can see a couple doodles on my 'to make' list. The piggy thing is below, the

sketch on the upper left of the page is what I was thinking for this jar. I am terribly excited. I have never made something so ......so.......Michelin Man before. Like Cartman, or like I was thinking, a down coat.

What a cool pot! I am so impressed by your talent!

P.S. I found you by way of Lis Garrett's blog.

Thanks Stephanie!

I am trying to show how I think a to b, and then make it...but maybe my inspirations and connections are a little hard to see.

Cartman brought you to that pot? Wow.

sigh, it is hard to explain how I think, maybe I shouldn't try.....

Wish you had a whiteboard on here, Gary, so's we could doodle along with ya. Love the michelin elephant; might be obvious, but I bet you'll try a michelin piggy if you keep going down this path... :-)
