When I told my old friend, Mimi, that I made chameleons, she asked 'Why?' Ah, that's a good question. I don't know why exactly, but I always liked their green colours (although there are lots of different coloured ones, of course), tails, and gangly legs. But the best part might be their tails. I like swirls. I am fascinated by the swirls of seahorses (they are called Dragon's droplets in Japan, by the way!), ferns, rams' horns and pain aux raisins!
One evening, I made one, and then I made lots!

I also experimented with underglaze.
Then I made a bigger one for paperweight.
How about stand-alone ones? I made four little ones, and one medium one.

And finally a large one. This one went to fabulous artists couple, and they named him Jubjub after Simpson's wife's pet! He is about 30cm in length.
