Smallest egg yet!

If you remember the newly cut road from last week – turns out there  is a very good clay deposit.  My clever fellow has done pottery in the past, and recognized the potential.

He brought some to the the house, where he and our 5 homestay guests played for a few hours making figurines.  Now they are nearly dry and most are intact.  The clay is quite hard.

Tiny rooster, hen, chicks, cat, pig (the winner), gecko, shrunken head,  surfboard, turtle, horse and more.

Here’s my favorite – though the photo isn’t very good:

  1. That’s so neat! Just last night here at home we were daydreaming about having a big house witha huge yard and having a big art studio for pottery and stained glass and all cool artsy things. Then it made me think of the farm (big house- check. Big land- check). I was asking if there’s clay there and we all thought no. HA!
