As I was updating my Etsy ABOUT page, I realized that I still haven't taken down Fellini as an employee. I still don't think I can. He was such an important part of my studio. If I was in there, so was he. He would sleep in front of the door and wait for me to come down and get to work. He spent his final hours laying next to the wheel, the sound of it calming him while he slept. Fellini was a potter.
In small ways he's still there with me. I use his old dish as my water bowl for throwing and his collar is hung on the wall. The other dogs visit and check in on me these days. Soon I think I'll officially hire Sammy as the studio dog. She seems to be the one to always be there when I'm working, and has a similar sweetness.
