Orca have learned to follow fishing boats, ones that long-line fish, and intercept the catch as it is being winched up. One time, my ex was in a new boat and the orca wanted to know what kind of fishing the boat was going to do. So one daring orca snuck up next to the boat and lifted up out of the water. He carefully studied all the equipment and looked my ex up and down before vanishing into the his realm.
On the backside of the tile image above, the date constantly changes. Pretty much everything I make sells in the same year that I make it. The main ingredient in my tile clay is the Bootlegger Cove Clay, and it is the clay formation underlying all of Anchorage at varying thicknesses and depths.
The “Silver Hand Artist” stamp on the backside means I’m registered with the state of Alaska as a native Alaskan artist.
