My friend Zach, who is a slug mug fan, came in to the shop to buy a birthday present. He was thinking maybe it was weird to say "Happy Birthday Mom, here's a slug for you!" so he decided to go with a snail mug instead. I had one with a cute pair-" like your parents!" I said, and it gave me the idea to do the slug and snail "sweethearts" mugs. I"ll be featuring "New Work" at AKAR Gallery
, opening Oct 19th so I sent them off to Iowa today.
I have been working on dessert plates for 30x5, The Dessert Plate Show, at AKAR in November, so I made a set. Stay tuned for more plates!
