Tea bowls for Paul

A friend of mine from elementary school, Paul, bought a house recently. When I saw him at Fresh Fish, I handed him a tea bowl[1] for a house-warming gift, and he ordered three more to make a set.

They’re sitting in the studio now, waiting for a bisque firing. I made two dragonflies, two spiders, and two snails. Once they’ve been glazed, I’ll drop off three for him, and put three up on etsy.

[1] It would have been a teacup, but I absent-mindedly picked it up by the handle when it was still green. The cup part didn’t fall very far, though, so it survived fine. I just smoothed off the side and declared it a bowl. Turns out it’s just the size tea bowl Paul likes, so *that* all worked out beautifully.
