speaking of ziggurats...




(pots by Gary Rith, ziggurat by Mesopotamians or somebody)
No, not really, but I was struck by the sort of ridges and tapering common to this teapot and a ziggurat. I was messing around with a metal rib, trying out little ridgies, and this was the result.

You have metal ribs? Wow.

Must be fun going through airport security with those metal ribs. Do they make you undress?
But, all I could think of was Mrs. Ziggurat Builder saying, "What would you think if you sort of took that last tier and put it around on the other side? Why don't you do that so I can just see what it would look like?"

Very nice. I like the inspiration.
