Tip the Waiter

Tip the Waiter

I found Tip in the kitchen behind the refrigerator. I don’t know how he got there and I don’t remember having him before then. He’s the handle of a vintage bottle opener. He’ll open bottles that aren’t vintage, too. He appears to be holding a beer mug and growler for Oktoberfest. I think he’s had too many bottles. He looks tipsy.

Coyoteception

“Clan” by Primal Visions, 2005.

Expertly glazed stoneware coyote figure with running coyotes painted on the side.  The top glaze is a mustard color that blends into sky blue on the lower body and black on the belly, tail tip, and feet.  There are other tribal symbols on the body, such as hunters, a breath path, and a bear claw.  I should show the whole thing when I get the time.  I’d say it’s the best piece in my collection.  Photographed as a high dynamic range macro for this week’s FlickrFriday and Macro Mondays challenges on Flickr.
