This piece started out as a generic Tabby cat, but ended up as a black cat based on the results of an Instagram poll... and my impatience with glaze painting a complex pattern. Both Tabby and black cats are not a specific breed, but are actually a descriptor of domestic cats based on their physical characteristics. This is technically my sixth ceramic cat, including the Water Bearer and the Lion, White Tiger, Siberian Tiger 1.0, Barbary (Atlas) Lion, and Siberian Tiger 2.0... and my seventh if you also count the Black Panther! Incidentally, her owner has named her 제숙이 (Jae-sook-ee). My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
