Bug on a gumball
We have two sweetgum trees that I haven't seen up north. The fruit or "gumball" (as I quote from Wikipedia) where the seeds are found turns brown later on, and there are a whole bunch of these things under the tree. I wanted to take a picture of them, and the bug was just a bonus. Last year I saved them and used them as filler in my plant containers. I think the little orbs are cool! Yes, I'm weird.

A really good pot is in the details. --Doug Casebeer at the Ceramics Workshop in Jamaica '10
There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
