toothless hillbilly

This fine young man lost his front tooth this morning.  We have had some pretty good laughs lately when he would stick that loose tooth through his lips....looking like a hillbilly.  Hopefully, the tooth fairy is one top of her game and doesn't forget, it has happened before.  What are we supposed to do with these teeth?  I'm pretty sure his future wife doesn't want an old tooth.

thrown & blown

This afternoon my little boys and I went to Thrown & Blown at the Louisville Art Gallery.  This wonderful potter gave my middle his first experience at the wheel!  From cutting the clay to sponging out the water.  
As soon as his little hands touched the clay and the wheel started to turn his face was lit by an enormous smile.  It took a little while for him to get used to having clay on his hands.  When I asked what his favorite part of the day was, he said, "getting to make a pot on the wheel!"  I have to say, his little pot turned out very nicely!!

before & after

As I look at these pictures, I hope that once I put a little distress & glaze on this buffet it will look better. In the before picture you can't see the leg that is gnarly or the top that had a weird gunk on it...
Once I get some little touches done and the glass jars back it will look just right.
