another reason to get up in the morning




(tea or coffee pot by Gary Rith)
This froggy thing turned out pretty well, too.
In other news, cooking up a glaze experiment I mentioned yesterday, jade, the first test looks a lot like this glaze I already have, pictured here (turtle celadon). Except where it is super thick, then it is a pretty turquoise/jade color. If I experiment with it further, I need to realize it goes on impossibly thick, or maybe needs some other ingredients. More on this tomorrow.

The froggy feet are a very nice touch. :-)

The froggy feet are wonderful, and the frog on top looks like he is begging you to help yourself to some coffee! Too cute. ;)

I loves them frogs! I pulled out my bottle of white wine the other day that is currently topped with your froggy wine stopper, and thought fondly of you.

That green? Amazing!

That is a really good shade of green. And the froggy feet are the best!

I'd say turtle celadon requires a turtle. Or vice versa.
