There's no way I could wait till the first day of March to show you my rabbit. I thought about adding some color to him but in the end I decided to keep him white, the natural color of the clay. He has a clear satin glaze to give him a little shine. He was made by pinching clay and is six inches tall and four inches wide. He's plump and a bit serious looking because he has a couple of secrets. He hides coins and if you say White Rabbit on the first day of the month he'll bring you good luck.
If only I can figure out a stopper to fit in the bottom. When I made him Michele of Meesh's Pottery advised me to make the opening on the bottom recessed. But he was already made and I didn't want to risk breaking his ears off so I left him alone. Michele makes awesome piggy banks.
I tried a cork but the one I tried was too large and I promptly broke it in half. The opening is one inch. A quarter will easily fit through the slot and out the bottom. Perhaps I can find a rubber or wood stopper which will fit. I see this company has rubber, plastic, pvc, composition, and cork stoppers in all different sizes. Anyway he's happy to be here with or without a stopper till I have time to find one that fits. This post is part of Mud Colony what's happening in the studio. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
