OMG! I am so rusty at this that I couldn't upload more than one. This is what I made today. When it was done, Alex showed me videos of Maru, a cat on youtube who is famous for liking to stuff himself into boxes. There are also cats who stuff themselves into jars. It reminds me of Temple Grandin's theory of animals liking tight comforting spaces, like a baby in swaddling clothes.
For a while I was having trouble making things, but I'm now on a roll.
I sold my mermaids in a jar today. Lots of people still like mermaids. Years ago I made nothing but mermaids for a shop on that pier in San Francisco(I can't remember the number, although it's famous and I've been there).
I want to make a mermaid on a Vespa next.
It will be a challenge.
We'll see.

Yes, I need to write more, but not now.
I'm trying to think of a name for this piece.
