Minnesota plate 2017

This plate suggests the Land of 10,000 Lakes, the first state I entered at the moment of birth. It’s about nine inches across.

* Fifty more, if you count the District of Columbia, where I now live, and which still has no congressional representation. Let’s think about that.

Seventy-five dollars.

With a fish handle and piscatorial message of advice inside.

bear jar fish rim bear jar inside lid

One jar with two lids. Why? You want the finished piece to have the best elements in combination. If I made one lid, or one handle for a jar or mug, what are the chances that that one would fit or be proportional? Make an extra (or two, or three). In this case I just finished both lids, bear and bird.

The green pot and lid have Pinnell’s Red Orange inside.
