This very masculine bottle became an instant favourite of my son, Barry, who loved the masculine feel and the hand-crafted chain made and gifted to me by Eileen Gidman (I have the best friends).
On a sadder note, it's been a week of loss. Our studio cat, Opal, has left us to go mousing around St. Peter's chair. I'll miss her extraordinary presence in the midst of my creative chaos, and her assistance with everything I've ever done. You can see her handiwork here and here.
RIP, Opal, and happy mousing.
