Let’s talk widgets. Our old pal cm is coming over some day soon to pick up some flower pots she ordered, and I have pictured them here before. I was reminded, though, by a gardening friend named Connie (all these C names!) of those little widgets that go into any plant pot. You know, a little dog or frog on a spike, put it into your English ivy? Here is a pic of one, next to a real flower pot, and maybe I will give cm one or two with her order. I usually make all this stuff in the spring, but indoor plants are year round.
As for handles, what if you have a highly textured cup and wanna try a highly textured handle on that cup? Usual is on the left, with subtle lines, experiment on the right, a sort of zig-zag corduroy that should get crazy under the right glaze.
