Fortune cookie and the sacred spiral



(pots by Gary Rith)
Sounds like a new wave band, eh?
Fortune cookie is a blogger whose real name is________ and she asked for a teapot with a spiral motif somehow. You know how I feel about people and their kooky ideas, but she is really nice and I started thinking. I first put little spiral dots on there which will be glazed a different color, then I added these little spiral on the lids as knobs! Yeow! I like that idea. Anyway, I have to make a small one for her, this is a huge set, but has the sort of dynamic look I find pleasing.
And I continue to fiddle with lizards, as in the lower pic.

I'm so effin' excited! I almost spilled the beans on the surprise present this will be for my friend last night, but I controlled myself, barely. Those look wonderful and I can't wait to see how Snappy's smaller version turns out! I love the spiral topper! LOVE IT! L-O-V-E I-T! and I just know she will!
I think those lizzard mugs are looking for a spot in my cabinet...but I'm afraid they'd have to push out some others first...

Oh, that is very nicely done.

I have always loved spirals.

I used to have these really cool spiral earrings, but I lost them. or they were stolen. Not sure.

Spirals are lovely, and very mystical.

Oh, and yeah! I meant to ask if you thought by any chance your admiration for pigs might have had any influence there?

Nice!! And I happen to know that you do a durn good job with your customers' kooky ideas and special orders (even if it does rub your creative soul the wrong way).

Gary - the teapot set is looking good!... How in the world do you post so much? I've been away from blog reading for a couple of days and you have 25 posts!!! I would never get any pots made and yet you're so darn prolific. I think you must have a clone. Yep, that's it.
