Having decorated a number of terra cotta pots, next came time to add the detail by means of sgraffito . This is a mostly an auto-pilot process and at times my mind contemplates matter large and small, well mostly small to be honest. Out of this came a segment from a favorite movie of mine, I am not sure why, it is just the odd way my brain works at assembling associations. The song is "How Little We Know" as sung by Lauren Bacall with  Hoagy Carmichael on piano. The video comes from the 1944 Bogart and Bacall classic; TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT. However I got there, it is just a perfect interlude for a busy Wednesday 12/12/12.
