I had a commission for an unusual 40th wedding anniversay present last week.
The customer wanted a little "cricketer" person made in ceramic to give to her husband. They had bought one years ago, but it had been made of plastic and it's head had broken off. (She brought the two pieces to show me). She wondered if I could make one similar, but incorporating a bottle of whisky as he likes that too.
I was really worried as I only had 10 days so if anything went wrong I wouldn't have time to make another one. Anyway, it went well - this is what it looked like when it was finished.
