before and after

(pots by Gary Rith)
So, wet pot bodies a couple days ago, become pots yesterday. They need to be fired today, so I placed them on a toasty warm, cooling kiln to finish drying, and fast. That kiln load, btw, was perfect and magnificent and will be posted a little later.

CM, mah dear, that is an ELEPHANT teapot, drying upside down. Handles, esp. in the style I make them, dry better upside down, also it gives the pot bottom a chance to catch up in drying to the rim of the piece.
