I know, I know, what was I thinking? How on earth did I wind up with a cat in a bag?
Well, it began with a lesson in pinch pots. I was learning how to trap air inside a pinch pot. Pretty much, you create a clay bubble. When air is trapped inside, you can then roll, morph and play with the clay, yet it stays inflated. I took my clay bubble and transformed it into a cat head.
Well, then what do you do with a cat head? First I tried making a coil pot for its body, but it looked horrible. It looked like an abandoned bee hive. It was abandoned to the trash!
Then the idea struck me…BAD PUN = AWESOME! = CAT IN A BAG
I made a ceramic bag out of clay slabs, stamped in my bad pun, added some handles and viola!
It’s being bisque fired as we speak….
Now what will I do with a cat in a bag when I get this thing home? …hmm… I have no idea!
