Chocolate Clouds

It is not just a lump of clay. It is a chocolate cloud.
Made by a 6 year old.

My friend Vera has two fascinating little grand boys. She brought in this most unusual piece for me to fire and I looked at it and asked what it was.
"Oh," she said, "He said it is a chocolate cloud." Of course, how could I not know? I love the way kids think. What a great imagination. And that is so hard for us to regain as we get older.

It reminded me of when my friend Kristine's sweet nephew said, "Oh, when you throw on the potter's wheel it looks like the clay is dancing in front of you."

We need to listen when children speak.
