Vintage Back Bend

Can your grandma do back bends?  Mine can!…(or could.)  These pictures are of Emmeline Kay Stockseth at Huntington Beach, California showing off her tricks.  My grandmother is now ninety four and physically not quite up to joining the circus, but I still remember when I was little girl we would ask her to do headstands for us, and she would oblige.

My talented friend, Julie, is experimenting with transferring images onto ceramic.  Here is the back bend on a soap dish.
