For Your Viewing Pleasure... remember I made those Jarheads? Two Jarheads and a Potty Mouth to be exact. But I couldn't post the picture of the one Jarhead because it was a birthday gift for my daughter? Well, I can now. It's been delivered by my sister and she's opened the box...and she LOVES it!

A little background on it before I post. It's a Miner...Coal Miner to be exact...see his 'coal' nose? She's a mechanical engineer in the processing plant at a coal mine. Her sweetie pie is a heavy duty mechanic. So...this little guy is wearing the coveralls that her b/f wears. Seems I got it exactly right! When I finished him I thought he was a little boring....which is why I added a little more colour on the one 'eye', but once finished I was pretty happy with him...that underglaze wash gives them so much depth! My very favourite thing about him is his hard hat. I was soooo happy with the way it turned out. When I first made it...before I attached it to the head, I thought about making small hard hat bowls! The best thing is....he's the perfect size for a cookie jar!

Here he is!

If you knew/know her b/f, you'll understand the big smile!
Thought I'd show you my finished 'Jarhead' Potty Mouth..though my sister thought he was some African tribesman!
I posted this pic on fb...but here it is for those of you that can't view it there.

Please check out Mud Colony to see what other fabulous potters have been up to this week!


  1. These look great-- and so do the mugs in the background! I think that people do use the spooze as a way of filling cracks. Hope you're having a great weekend, m

  2. Brenda, they look great! They are so cute! You are so creative!!! :)
