My pottery creations on and off the wheel.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned


photochallengeWeekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

Found this abandoned egg shell under the rimu tree last week and have kept it, its so beautifully fragile. Though i think this one might have been a hostile abandonment and wonder what it was eaten by.
Its very small just 2 cm and sitting in one of my glass melting tests (one of my abandoned experiments).


Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure


My treasure is this little creature.  Still amazes me to see them grow from the tiniest specks that show up on my swan plants, feel like i have a hand in something positive and hopeful and wonderous  While i run around them, making sure they have enough shelter and food, even if i have to transfer them by hand to leafier plants, moving the plant so they have just the right amount of sun, but not too much. Ive been known to chase them around the yard like a silly chook trying to photograph all their different stages, as if its the first time ive seen it happen.  The funny thing is that all the while i know they dont really need me to help, that they are just humouring me with the odd good pose, they know exactly what they are doing, somehow, just at this time of year!
