ready for the kiln...

...is a commission for a 40th wedding anniversary


and a late birthday present for one of my nephews.


Tully was 6 yesterday and I bought him some lego but whilst at work on Sunday it suddenly occurred to me that he'd probably like something with his name on.  I decided on a bowl as the most useful piece of crockery for a six year old ...


... then added some fingerprint monkeys (design courtesy of Usborne Books!!!).


Why is it only now that I'm realising that the tail maybe should have come from the side?!!!
