MARTINI is a star




(Martini the little floppy, moppy dog and pottery by Gary Rith)
Candace in Iowa asked for a spoon rest and dog bank, plus a dog mug. I volunteered to try to make a floppy little Martini for the mug, looking somewhat like her real dog. Martini has a black AND pink nose, and I think I got that detail pretty good.

I LOVE that paw-print on the mug, Gary. You nailed the nose, too. :-)

Candace said...

OMG, I couldn't see the detail of her nose in the picture you sent! You totally captured her adorable little pink and black nose, LOL! Thank you so much Gary! This close up of the mug really shows the detail! I love it! Ok, I love all 3 pieces you made for me! Thanks again!! I will have to try and snap a photo of Martini with her mug! :)

Does Martini sip a little soup out of a mug, or maybe some warm milk?



I am kidding of course.

Candace said...

Actually, she has been known to sneak a sip or two of water or milk if you leave it sit on an end table or night stand. She seems to avoid the hot drinks though. :)

Great job. That little dog would make me smile every morning while drinking my coffee.
