I still do not know what the characters mean. But Japanese is taught at the local university. So when I have time I’m going to try to find someone who can have a look. But if it says something mundane like “stinky feet,” I’m not sure if I will tell you. I still really like the pattern of the stamp, so, stinky feet would be OK with me.
Rummaging again, I found a little tiny leaf stamp that I made ages ago. I use it sometimes on the handles of pots. Since I haven’t made pots with handles for a long time, it is yet another little bit that has passed from my thought. I like tessellated patterns. I made a little repeating pattern in a slab of clay. Then cut out a few test pendants and charms.
You may well be wondering if I’ve gone off the deep end with all this rumination and return to old familiar things. I’ve got the annual Arts Festival to set up for in just one week. I do this show as a group with my local clay guild. So I am frantically working to get some things ready for this. I’ve made pendants, charms, and pots today. It is 9 pm and I’m just eating dinner now. And I was thinking I needed something a little showy I made a smaller version of the original barnacle pot. Will it all get done? Hope so!
