I just got back from spending some time with my sister Kiki in Madrid. We are very, very close but we hadn't seen each other in fifteen years! It was an incredible and emotional reunion. We visited the Real Jardín Botánico one day and these are some of the wonders I spied with my little eye. The last photo is the view from the plane before landing in Madrid.

Tombo means dragonfly in Japanese. It's also the name of this very nifty bamboo tool I learned how to make at ceramics school last week. It is a traditional Japanese measuring gouge used for making duplicate cups or bowls on the pottery wheel. It gives you a target width and depth of a bowl when you are making a matching set, which is what I will be attempting to make in my wheel throwing class.
And I wouldn't be me if I didn't decorate all my throwing tools with my wood burning tool, right? :)
