the compost pile in winter

Last year I did a set of yunomi  (every-day tea bowls) which had a compost pile theme   (they were chronicled in an earlier blog entry).  This year we have a visitor to the compost:  a young opossum.  I think he/she's eating the birdseed, as well as the compost.  Here is North America's only marsupial!  A slow and thoughtful creature.  I have been packing pots for a delivery up to the Clay Gallery in Ann Arbor tomorrow morning, and will be helping to set up for a show of my work in February.  It's the second to last month that I will be showing there--and it has been an energetic six months of work!
