Yep, that's an alligator handle. I don't remember, and can't read, where it's from. These are basically some photos I had in an album and never got around to classifying. But they are interesting, I think. All clay work, also I think.
The snow flurries haven't landed at all here. I just am so disappointed in this winter. You all who have had inches of it, please think of how much I wanted to scrunch my feet through snow, hearing that special sound it makes. Think of how much I wanted to make snow cream. Think of how I wouldn't have minded being cabin-bound for a day or so. And think of all the photos I wanted to take of a white pristine earth. I know plenty of people are really sick of snow by now. Sigh.
