Here is a picture of Tamari and I enjoying the gas firepit on our deck. The weather this summer here in Rhode Island has been great! The humidity has been fairly tolerable considering that some years it can become almost unbearable by August. It's been a lot of fun to spend time hanging out and relaxing on the deck with Jim and the dogs. We were lucky enough to get some new comfortable chairs for out there and they have been a nice addition. After this picture, Mari turned around and squished his big body into the chair where he sat on my lap for the next five minutes. He is so funny because he doesn't have any idea that he's big!
I know that Tamari gets all of the attention in the posts on this blog, so here is a picture of Kintu with me. Kintu is older, more serious and more shy than Tamari. He isn't much for photo ops, so to get him to pose for this picture was a big deal. He would rather be upstairs on the bed or sitting on the landing upstairs looking out the window. I had to make sure that he didn't burn his tail when he turned around to get into position for the picture! I hope your summer has been as pleasant and enjoyable as ours!

|Laura's teapot has a sense of humor! I especially like the "bite" out of the apple!|
Sophia's seahorse and coral teapot is a subtle blend of functional parts.
|Megan's work is moody and makes good use of dramatic lighting.|

|The shell design on Rachel's tortoise-inspired teapot looks rugged and deeply grooved just like a real turtle shell! She experimented with using a range of values from super light to very dark. This helped her painting to have a strong sense of form.|
|Alex works to add texture to a teapot design inspired by her observations of a squirrel. In the foreground we see samples of different values of payne's gray watercolor paint.|
