This morning I was sitting at the kitchen table and I saw something moving in the back yard. It was much larger than a squirrel and I wondered what it was. I went in the other room to get a closer look. I saw it was an armadillo. I was so surprised to see an armadillo right in our back yard. The armadillo was ambling by intent on foraging. He was nosing along at the ground looking for grubs and insects I suppose.
Of course I was inspired to make an armadillo platter today. I've taken the photo of the platter before I curled up the edges. I hope it turns out after firing. I added a little pink to his nose and toes because I noticed they had a pink tone on the armadillo I saw in the back yard. I could almost see some black and white handles on either end of this platter. Too late now but maybe for the next one. I'm rather taken with the black and white; I think I'll make a few more pieces in black and white with a touch of another color as an accent. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
