Red squirrel, black squirrel. I grew up in Michigan and we had some black squirrels on the coast. I always loved the differences between the little red squirrels and the larger black squirrels. Such obnoxious yet adorable critters.
Mug body thrown by Renata Wadsworth (if you like this style of thrown mug with my paintings and drawings on the top, I would nab this while you can. It's the last of the thrown vessels for awhile.) Holds about 15oz
