A Handful of Owls

I made these for @thante in the IYP swap because one of the ideas she wrote to me was, “a handful of owls”. Now, I don’t know that this was exactly what she had in mind when she penned that statement but this vision popped into my head at that moment and I just had to make it happen. The idea was inspired by previous “bowls of whimsy” that I’ve experienced in my life. One of my former ceramics instructors had a bowl full of little faces that he’s absently sculpted in his college days and I always loved them. So, here is my interpretation on a bowl of whimsy, or in this case, a handful of owls…

They’re super cute and feel nice in the hand! :green_heart:

…and then they were still sitting on my coffee table when my mother came to visit yesterday, and she looked at them and said, “oh, of course! They’re owl pellets!” :laughing:
