Yellow Birds and Rabbit in Tall Grass

I worked on a couple of platters the other day. This first is a couple of yellow birds, perhaps they are finches.

Here's a rabbit in tall grass. I can just imagine a rabbit hopping through some tall grass. I see I need to define his eye a little more. Below is a low vase which was going to be a business card holder but grew larger than I planned. After I added the sprig on the front I thought a square one would have looked good too but it was too late to exchange one for the other.

At the last farmer's market of the year I splurged on a goose for Thanksgiving. The goose is thawed out and ready for me to cook. Happy Thanksgiving to you all. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. I really like your birds. I've never tasted goose. Is it very different from turkey?

  2. Hi Anna, thanks, hope the birds turn out nicely. I have no idea about the goose, since I've never had it either, the woman who raised them has only raised them this year, so we shall see how it turn out. I'll probably post about it so check back after Thanksgiving. I might make a goose platter to honor the goose for thanksgiving.

  3. Just stopping by to thank you for being my blogger friend and sharing your artful journey I pray for an abundance of blessings for you on Thanksgiving Day and each day after :) Dee

  4. I like the yellow birds; they're so cheery for this time of year! The rabbit reminds me of some of your Florida work. We used to have Goose for Christmas; it's all dark meat and very tasty. Unless we are having company we dow a duck now.
    Have a terrific Thanksgiving!

  5. Love the bird platter. Very nice! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Lovely platter with the birds. And I like the little piece with the spring on it... Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow, enjoy your goose!

  7. Love those birds. Happy Thanksgiving.

  8. Those birds are nice, I love yellow finch.
    I have never had goose either, since I like dark meat, I am sure I would enjoy it.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and Gary!

  9. Those definitely are finches, and happy thanksgiving to you and yours. Some goose for the cats, I hope.

  10. Linda, you have been busy. You make me want to start playing with clay again. Classes start in January for the spring semester. Happy Thanksgiving!

  11. Hi Dee, thanks every so much, I wish the same for you too.

    Hi Suzi, thanks, I love dark meat so I hope it turns out well, I haven't seen duck here but then again I haven't looked. I got the goose as it was raised organically, we shall see.

    Hi Pam, thanks so much, I hope you have a good Thanksgiving.

    Hi Barb, thanks, hope that little sprig stays on.

    Hi Sue, thanks, I see so many birds on your blog I should do more. Ha.

    Hi Michele, thanks, well you know me when I see something different I like to try it, hope it was worth the hefty price the farmer charged me.

    Hi Joanne, thanks, oh the cats will be spoiled rotten I think.

    Hi Rian, thanks, clay is fun and so therapeutic, Happy Thanksgiving to you.

  12. Linda, Happy Thanksgiving! Hope your goose was hit!

    Love the finches :)

  13. Hi Sandy, thanks, Happy thanksgiving to you, yes the goose was good but my oven suffered.
