a teapot is born




(teapot by Gary Rith)
Sunday I made these parts, Monday they were half dry and I assembled the teapot. I had made the smaller solid donut for the handle. The larger donut, as you see middle pic, is hollow, and intended to be the spout, but I asked myself, for the sake of aesthetics, maybe part of the hollow donut is the spout, the rest is the handle??????
The only question I ask myself, finally, is 'where do pigs fit in here? one, 2, 3????'

It's a teapot! (said in the same way one might say "it's a boy!" or "it's a girl!"...'cuz you DID title it "A teapot is born."

Pigs - well, one on the lid looking through the little hole and then one sitting on the edge of the spout watching the water pour out.
