I have reason to believe a raccoon has been making a visit the last couple of days. Certain evidence has been left behind!
He has broken five pieces of pottery. I am glad it wasn’t more, but still five is too many! He has trampled through my clay as you can see here. He has ruined several collecting dishes that were just thrown, knocked mugs off of the top shelves, knocked over kiln shelf posts onto pottery that was then shattered. He has also left me several unwanted “presents”. I fired the kiln again last night. I hope he didn’t come by again for a third visit. He has done enough damage. I will say though…his hand prints are pretty cute. I want them left somewhere else though!
