No Really! This guy/gal was wandering around in the woods behind the house yesterday. I don't usually see single turkeys at this time of year. It's possible that she took a break from egg sitting or was food searching for turkeyettes.
These are majestic birds. I love the way the changing light changes the coloring. Courting males with their tails in full array are something to see. Now I see why Ben Franklin wanted the wild turkey as our national bird.
I made four new molds yesterday. This will be a medium size plate, suitable for a sandwich or a snack. I like to make my molds out of high fire clay fired to a low bisque temp. They are absorbent and I don't have to worry about plaster getting into my clay.
I make the ovals in various sizes. Sometimes I add little feet and glaze the exterior. Most of the time I like to leave the exterior unglazed and burnished.
We had a pizza pig-out of Sunday. Unfortunately we were so excited about eating them that I forgot the camera. We did sauteed onions, potatoes and swiss cheese; chicken, potatoes and provolone; bacon, tomato and cheese; and pepperoni and two cheeses. We didn't do them on the grill as it was too windy. We cook with charcoal and wood and even though the woods are wet it's stupid to take chances.
Thanks to my new followers for finding me.
Thanks for stopping by..............*s*
