Betty Baker was really inspired by our demo - she made three Kurinuki vessels shown below on the right!
Hetta Malone reports: "I’m still a trainee but have been able to develop some new skills with iPhone images during SIP. Most images taken in Rossmoor or immediate vicinity."
NOTE: Hetta is a member of CAC's February/March Orientation class that was interrupted by the lockdown on March 10; three of her wonderful pictures are shown below.
Anne Shulenberger - having been shown the technique by Mary Ann - also had fun making the two little pictures on the second row.
--- The rest of the story is below the photo ---
It was about 3 years ago. This poor creature had put his foot into a drainage pipe and pulled out the pipe and could not dislodge it from his foot. It was tortuous and after many months he was very lame, but still feisty. I called every rescue organization from Mendocino to Big Sur and no one rescued deer… I finally contacted fish and game and they came out, set up camp and in about two days were able to sedate him, on my front yard.
They sent a pic of the injury to a vet to decide if they thought he would survive or they should put him down. They opted to remove the drain from the entrapped hoof and trim the horribly over grown hoof and let him be. They tagged his right ear #162 , thus his name. Also, that first year, he also had a broken antler on the left side, so the ear tag counter balanced the broken antler in a way that gave him “style”… he kinda looked like a hippy deer. Eventually, he got up and wobbly limped off. The leg got better, one barely notices a limp now, and he appears to have a harem.
End of story… except the herd of deer in the yard.
