Martha Stewart showed off a nativity scene she made in prison on her show yesterday. Martha made the baby Jesus, Joseph, Mary, three camels and others she sculpted at a pottery class while she was in the slammer.
She said, "Even though every inmate was only allowed to do one a month, and I was only there for five months, I begged because I said I was an expert potter — ceramicist actually — and could I please make the entire nativity scene." Begged my ass! She probably said, "I'm Martha Stewart and this is what I want" and they said OK.
Making crafts in the clink? Prison is fun!
Everything was fired and glazed at the prison. The palm trees were imported from Germany.
I'm sure the other inmates were pretty wowed by her skills and asked her to make them a couple of dildos. Hey, a ceramic dildo is better than nothing!
