Kissed By The Flame

Some pots are quiet, they don’t speak of carving or imagery. This one didn’t even speak of glaze colors or designs. Sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to the quiet. That would probably have been a better name for this post, maybe it’s the name of the vase. With nothing but a spearmint liner glaze, this piece was placed in the soda kiln. It’s about 11 inches tall so it was put in the top with a sculpture and a few other tall pieces. The soda and the flame did the decoration.

The vase is still very quiet but I think it came out well. I’m pleased with the painting the soda and flame did.

Sometimes the strangest things happen in my little village.  The other night we went to Holy Taco for dinner and as we were leaving we saw this sweet dog tied up outside the bar door.  This is not uncommon, lots of people in the area take their dogs to the local eateries so they can be near them as they dine al fresco.  Being dog lovers we stopped and loved on the dog for a few minutes.  That's when a man wearing a jacket and id badge that read "Medical Examiner Forensic Investigations" came out of the bar, sat down on the ground and started talking to us.  It makes me a little nervous to see the medical examiner at the restaurant where I just ate dinner but he assured me he wasn't working right then, he'd just stopped in for a drink.  He was very friendly and started chatting with us about the dog and his work and such.  Somehow the conversation transitioned into him asking questions like "are you drunk?" and "do you smoke pot?' and the next thing you know he was asking us if we had any cocaine because he would love to do a line of cocaine and drink a nice glass of cognac. 
I think if the Fulton County medical examiner is thinking cocaine and cognac is a good idea it might be time that he consider changing careers or even retiring.  I'm honestly hoping that the id badge and jacket were all just part of a very early Halloween costume.  We don't even need to have a full moon to have strange things happen around here.

  1. WOW -- that is so strange! Do you think he was trying to set you up -- or truly looking for something -- I'm with you the only way to think about it - the guy must have thought it was Halloween! Completely weird.

  2. I don't know Judy, I'd already told him I wasn't drunk, didn't smoke pot or do coke. He said I was boring, which may be true but I don't mind that at all.

  3. Life and the characters in it never cease to amaze me.

  4. Linda, They never cease to amaze me either, but they sure do help keep it interesting too.
