A bowl for Clive, a mantle for Tanner, and a spoon and a saddle (I am only responsible for the plaque, which is in hedge and walnut) for Harold.  This weeks bonus image is a little tree frog freshly emerged from my son’s tadpole nursery.  I trust you’ll forgive so many images of one bowl when you consider how stunning the character of the grain is from every angle.
