After class on Wednesday night I decided to make a juicer, but I used too much clay. Greg and I decided it was the "Juicer of Death" since one could easily have juiced something the size of a cantaloupe on it. At first I thought I would keep it for the irony of its size, but in the end I mushed it. To illustrate the size of the JoD, on Thursday I took the clay from the JoD, added less than 1/2 a pound to it and made four juicers. Unfortunately I forgot to take any pictures of them, but they are resting nicely on Minke's top shelf (thanks Minke!) since I am out of room on mine.
I think I've mentioned this before , but thanks to Elaine's challenge of 100 pots I am making things I've never tried before (including juicers) and really stretching my boundaries.
During our conversation on Wednesday Greg and I decided that just about anything sounded better with "of Death" added to it (in a suitable Don LaFontaine baritone). Try it and see for yourself: The Turn Signal of Death, The Paper Towel of Death, The Tea Cozy of Death, etc. I think "of Doom" works well too.
Something else to think about today.
