Pots and bugs-

I did snap some more shots of pots.
I just put them on the kiln and shot away.
You will get the jest of what things are so here goes:
Two of my jars.

Two of Mark's vases.

Mark and I have been keeping a close eye on the garden since the butterflies.

As I was looking yesterday I saw two praying mantis.

Below you will find , "are you looking at me?" or "what the hell are you looking at?"

And," what's for lunch ?"

By Mark Heywood.

Please note the pictures we use, no matter how poorly they are taken are the property of Mark and Meredith Heywood.
Please ask if you would like to use one.

I love are you looking at me- it is on my desktop at the moment!

Do you have time for one more bug?
I will be quick!
Mark called for me to bring the cameras and come see a really big caterpillar. I ran out and this is what we found. I have never seen one in all my years here and unfortunately it was not long for this world.

We have speculated all afternoon on how it ended up in the driveway.

We looked it up and here is what we found, It is a "hickory horned devil".

Still no clue- but I might spend another 34 years looking for another one.

The pots look GREAT! Love the little jars. I like the pix of the preying mantis, too. The hickory horned devil, eh, not so much.

Beautiful jars and vases, lots of detail to see in each one of them, love the corkscrew handles on the jars and I especially like the top jar glaze and form. The praying mantis looking is cool.

Now don't say bad things about the caterpillar- it can't help how it looks!
I have always been fascinated by bugs. I don't always like to hold them, but they are interesting.
Thanks for nice things about my jars and lids.
One of my favorite things to make.

The marks/stamps on the little jars make me wish I could pick them up and check out the other sides. Nice.

I like praying mantis. They seem like a cartoonist made them up.

Those are wonderful jars and pots. They are beautifully decorated. I love them.

That is one ugly bug! Really really cool!
Love the canisters, I'm drawn to the twisty knob on top.
