From a previous posting, you may remember I have issues doing custom orders as they take me FOREVER to do. I usually only do them for family because they understand C.S.T. (or Chanda Standard Time) which is a lateness/lagging that I am typically known for. In fact, my Mom said the only time I have ever been on time is for my birth when I came exactly on the day the doctor’s said I would (Happy Birthday to me, July 26th!!)
At any rate, I was challenged by a customer who asked if I could make a utensil holder for her. She had a fire in her house and her collection of mugs including mine got burned and cracked. She then complimented me and gave me such a wonderful description of my work and I quote “it reminded me strongly of some algebraic diagrams I was researching for a course through my master’s program” that I caved and said I would try. Okay, yes it took me six months but she assured me repeatedly she could wait and this is the resultant utensil holder. Maybe someday it will become regular offering!!
