leapin' lizards and bats!

My favorite pot "additive" was a bat.
I often leave my studio doors open at night to cool
off during the summer.
I had completed 6 of my "dragon mugs", and had them
sitting on a bat with a sheet of plastic lightly
draped over them.
In the morning I removed the plastic to check on them
and found a bat who thought a cool, damp, leatherhard,
pot with a dragon on the side was a perfect spot to
spend the night. There he was hanging by his toes.
I wish I could have left him in there, but had to turn
on the wheel & get to work. He hated the vibrations,
gave me a dirty look and began crawling around the
studio looking for less vibration & noise.
I will occasionally have bats & often have birds get
caught in the studio, we must have built it in a
"path". Too cold here for lizards though.
