I love it NP what a find ..
I was passing a charity shop before xmas and spotted one of those pie crust funnels like a blackbird I could see a no. on the front so it had to be a Clarice Cliffe one .. It cost me £ 2.00 they sell for up to £ 20 on e-bay ...

He's got a lot of character, nice buy :)

3 pounds I guess that would equate to what $6 or $7 Canadian? You probably could not make it from scratch that cheap no matter how much rubbish you thru into it. Yes it is crumbly and like you say: well chuffed!
A car booty? garage? we call them garage or yard sales.
Honestly! a good deal NP but nothing close to your work but it was probably mass produced.
Maybe you could design something very unique and crazy to sit next to the bloke?

Nice to see you aboard again. (Check out blog #9) If you need a chuckle. Ta!

I say bash the piss & vinegar out of it mate and call it "A Walk in the Park Meets Clockwork Orange!" film it for prosperity and the news at six. Ain't near your caliber I hope it's hiding in a corner of your garden no one ever goes. The boys have probably done their business on it eh! That's my honest and unbiased opinion. Only because you are an artaste!

Oh I think it should be titled Dead in a Week!

6 Jan, 2009

6 Jan, 2009

 

You and your Skull faces NP :)))) If i were in your garden and saw all your Fab sculpters and thn came on this Fellow, i would think it was your first attempt at Sculpting hahahahaha...

The Nose is in La La land you know snore and snore some more land.
If I was in the Potters garden and came across that fellow I would think who the blink blink throw this piece of carp over the fence into his property.

I had a nightmare last night, just recovering from it mind you. It was NP's latest addition to the garden.

It went like this:
Sitting on a park bench,da da da
Eying little girls with bad intents! oh oh oh Aqualung.
Snot was running down his nose.
Greasy fingers smearing it on shabby clothes,oh oh oh Aqualung.

It all hit me the bloke on the bench is non other than Jethro Tull! and that green stuff you call moss is well..........

I needed to get that out fell much better. I must go now and see the doc, truly.

7 Jan, 2009

 

spookely enough old boy you just described me perhaps thats why i like it

7 Jan, 2009

 

L.M.A.O. right this flippin minute!
I'm back from the docs and he said to take smaller doses of GOY and stay away from cheesy lawn ornaments with English blokes that look more Asian persuasion with funny lil hats sitting on a park bench that looks like it's made of bird poop! but that's the last I will say on this topic because I'm afraid of recurring nightmares or worse wet dreams.

7 Jan, 2009

 

I know I shouldn't but I'm going to press the icon that says (I like this photo) even though I truly believe it needs its own BLOG! And I'm going to press the icon (add to my favourites) just because..........

7 Jan, 2009

7 Jan, 2009
