yeow!


(teapot by Gary Rith)
Maybe sometimes I say "Is this the best pot I have ever made???". I really like this one. I like modern and interesting shapes and colors, and the different circles here together are somewhat dynamic, with the bonus of the quirky little dog on top. The red glaze turned out, if I may say, superbly.
So, the problem is, this is my blog and I don't want to sound immodest, but I am excited about this piece.

Nice pot! Hey, have you ever put a cow on one? Hmmmm, after I pay off the little salad bowl plate thingie and earn me some ETSY money? I might have to order me one of these babies only in green..and with a little moo cow.

Sweet!

The only way to make sure your horn gets blown is to do it yourself, Gary. That teapot certainly deserves it, too. :-)

That color is fantastic. You really need to do more pieces with it.
