Tygris Spring 2003- March 10, 2009

In memory of Sweet Tygris. These were some of the very last photos, named by Becky, Soft Paw. Because her sister Euphrates was the Queen, Tygris had to abide by the rules. When Euphrates died last year, Tygris became a new cat with the Queen no longer dictating the household. She acted like a four year old cat, youthful and energetic. My cats never talked and suddenly I had a talking cat. she ran freely about, sounding like a herd of horses in the hallway. She reminded me when it was time to go to bed, sitting patiently in the hall as I watched the end of show. She was so soft, everyone always commented on her fur, and she was just the sweetest loving of cats. Gentle and patient. I will miss my sweet loving cat.

Black Hearts

Toasted, not quite what I was imagining...but we are learning a new technique, glad these are only tests.

There are three missing too... someone at the studio said: stolen hearts?

Happy late valentine's day

Here are some of my hearts I made as test tiles for the next barrel firing, which is Sat/Sun. Using the terra sig made during Jim Whalen's workshop at Clayworks. Just love these hearts and shiny terra sig.
