(variety of pots by Gary Rith)
A lot to explain here. I am in a gallery show in May, and I need some HOT pieces to go into it. The purple teapot with the dog on it is MY personal teapot, kept because I love it plus it had cracked in the firing when I made it 3 years ago. (CM has been to this house and she has had her Earl Grey in this teapot) So I wanted to make a new teapot with a looped handle on top, purple glazed, with that same little dog on top.
Kete and Jim asked for a cow spoon rest. I hadn't made one like this before, but you see 2 being glazed in the bottom picture. I realized I could make a little udder on the bottom. I think I need one to give my mom for Mother's day....
