wherein we leave piggies behind...
(pots by Gary Rith)
....for a little while. I shall make more later today, but let's talk teapots for a second. Julie was showing how to make a loop handle on the wheel, which is the bees' knees and you see it here. And as you know, I have been making puffy, quilted looking pots for a couple of weeks. I was talking to a real person, face to face, last Friday and Frank said: I really love these mugs, you just want to hold it and grip it.
I had to try one of these mugs myself, and it IS satisfying to hold. (and sometimes it takes another person to tell you about your own work) So I thought I would see how hard it would be to make a teapot this way, and this guy looks pretty excellent.
