Better Than A ...........

"Poke In The Eye With A Sharp Stick".
Comment : I have heard that expression all my life . When something was just adequate (not wondetrful but still not bad) my Grandfather would say, "Well, it's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick". I just wanted to see if that was true. I think this jug would agree that anything is better than that!

The Secret Ingredient Is.......

Baked a loaf of artisan bread in the cast iron Dutch oven. It was terrific!
 Here's a youtube video  I followed to make the bread (not my video). I left out the vinegar this time and added a bit more beer.

Feel Lucky Punk ?

Number 98 of the last 1000 jugs I will make.
For sale on Ebay click link to see listing.

Title: " Feel Lucky, Punk ?"
"Well, Do Ya ?"....." Go Ahead.....Make My Day".

This is the first portrait caricature I have ever tried. In case you can't tell, this is supposed to be Clint Eastwood. I just wanted to try some new face shapes and his long sour face with high cheek bones was fun to make.

The raku firing resulted in a rugged cracked and figured surface befitting old "Dirty Harry" himself.

Comment : These two are just opposite ends of the same attitude. The man thinks it is terribly rude of the bird to impose it's self on his person. The bird thinks the man has some nerve for intruding in his woods . I doubt that they will be able to solve their dilemma amicably.
