While I was in the jury box I spent a lot of time drawing in our provided notebooks. I did this mainly to calm my nerves while the testimony was taking place. I did however work on some decorations that I thought might be nice. One of the items I kept coming back to was a little bunny. Unfortunately after the trial was done they took our notebooks and shredded them. I tried to draw the bunny today on one of the mugs:

It kind of looks like a cross between a bunny and a turtle... hmmm. I think I like it though. I really like pots with what I would consider a classic beauty. Quiet, serene, and stately. Something like this. This is something I strive for in the majority of my pots. However I also like pots that are both "good pots" and make me laugh. I can't say whether or not this is a good pot, but it defiantly makes me chuckle. I think that's what attracts me so much to Ron Philbeck's pottery: they are well made, they stand up well as functional pots, yet you can't help but smile when you see them.

Yes wanting to drink your morning coffee out of the "bunny mug" would help start the day off with a smile.

Wow Joe thanks. That really means a lot to me.
