I really had no love for my two vessels...
and created a third to take another crack at.
I felt my 'stripes' were a way of avoiding the surface issue
and really, if I'm here to do what I'm not used to
I should embrace the challenge.

I took a 3 leafed shamrock I'd found outside the studio
and used it as a random and repeating pattern
I let my carving marks show, and I went for it.
and wow, #3 - is awful! 
When the instructor left for the day,
I started my own project... I made a yeti.

I have a thing for yeti's - 
anyway, i like him so much, when it was time to go 
I brought him home with to finish.
