I like to give credit for good ideas. I have made little elephant figurines for a many years. One night in a pottery class, my student Quianna Douglas said "I betcha can't make one doing a handstand." When I was done, she responded "showoff" which has become one of her nicknames for me (I completely agree), and also the name I've given those elephants. That was about a year ago, and since then the little showoffs have been a smash hit, winning over customers and galleries at an alarming rate. These days I make them while watching tv in the evenings. And here's the view inside the kiln that I opened this morning.
