well, all that talk about "summer! " and "finished!" was apparently an outrageous lie. i mean, i'm still finished, but i forgot about my little friend here. he's a netsuke (a japanese charm/toggle-type sculpture), made of one cubic inch of porcelain, i.e., very small. he is probably the only thing i made in ceramics and didn't immediately want to hurl from the fourth floor balcony of the commons. and he has little underneath feet.
