But not bird droppings! I unloaded the kiln this morning. And I really could not be more pleased. These are a couple of the new bird beads in an aqua glaze. Each little bird poked and prodded into a wee little bird. Coaxed into being from a little lump of clay. Very smooth and tactile. I like that. I like beads that just kind of beg to be touched. Is that weird? Well if it is, then I am definitely on the weird end of the spectrum.
And then there are the drops. Rain drops, tear drops, I am not entirely certain how you name these. It's new. I don't entirely know where these came from. I do know that one day this little drop shape just sort of begged to come into existence. Sometimes it just happens that way. And many times that is just a lot of alright.
