hitting the home run out of the park, winning the Super Bowl!




(sketch and pots by Gary Rith)
OK, on top is the original doodled idea, bottom set shows the first teapot attempt (score!) with just added cups, creamer and sugar, then the middle.....bigger and better second yellow set. Things have been crazy lately, but my goodness, this stuff sure turned out nicely, and it feels like the best Christmas ever. I needed something special for a group exhibit next month, the middle set will do nicely.

All this crowing and tooting my horn, listen to me! Pardon the over-excitement.
AND, get this, the famous Denis comes today from the wilds of Vermont! Yes, that Denis! As they said in Wayne's world 'Party on Denis'....'Party on Gary'

Lovely, sunny yellow, Gary. I can't see how anyone could drink tea from that set and not smile.

Ellen: HA! You can't have it.
