This Pot is Worth Eight Thousand Eel Skins

Long ago, back in the day, I would engrave things into the bottom of my larger bowls and covered jars. The foot on these pieces would be so big that my name and the date would look a little lonely. I used a green covered jar for my chili at the cookoff (Laguna clay company "Rod's Bod", celedon glaze with iron oxide decorations, reduction fired to cone ten), and that was what was carved on the foot. Fragments of my dreams would make it onto pots, and this was one of them.

Another piece had the statement "Eggs were the id of the sixties".
