Here we have some small stone huts, which are in ruins. I'm still making one a day, and expect to continue with that until I'm sure what they're really about.
Moving on, the stones are naturally split to flat, but have a lot of crumbling inclusions. Weather is not kind to these structures without care and maintenance.
Some of the ruins have small shrines included. There is no one around to tell us what they were for, or why they were left behind.
I made some miniature dishes for the shrine on this one, but they didn't make it into this photo.
But back in the real world, we have a puppy, and we need some new dog dishes. Also, I sold some herd pots and need to make a few to replace them for future shows.
Not a bad start to the new year, which apparently started in late December 2016 this year rather than January 2017.
Perhaps the ruins are telling me not to neglect the things that matter in my life. Don't give up on important efforts. And stop neglecting the blogspot!
