a couple of cool special orders!




(cups by Gary Rith)
Chatty asked for a pink mug with an angel, which was new territory for me, a cow over moon cup with s square handle, also new territory, and Jessica asked about Halloween possibilities and I tried these ghosts, ALSO new territory. Chatty also wanted a pig mug.
looking pretty great, yes?

Looking great, yes. But, that's what we expect from you, Gary. :-)

How about piggy angels? You know, pigs with angel wings...and maybe a halo floating above?
Because I'm pretty sure you won't say, "When pigs fly!"

I crack myself up. Must be lack of sleep.

I think that Angel turned out to be very cute. You certainly have pigs nailed. They are always perfection.

Jessica said...

Thanks Gary! :) They look great!

Chatty said...

Oh, Gary - I LOVE them ALL! I also love the idea kcinnova had (I love MOST of her ideas, btw) of a piggy with wings and a halo - not for my missionary cousin, for whom this angel mug is meant - but for me ; )
Were you planning on just sending the angel you have already made as my order? Or would you rather keep her as a "sample" - just because? Either one is fine, but IF you decide to make another angel, my cousin Debbie also has arthritis in her hands, and a flat-top handle would be much better for her, too. I can't wait to see the black glaze and froggy when you make it over to Cornell and have the time - I'm sure it will be just as wonderful! I am in awe of your creativity...
ALSO - when you were at my blog today (and thanks for being a frequent visitor, btw), did you read the comment by Winston the beagle? I only ask because of Penny. Winston emailed me with a picture of himself, and I posted it as an "update" at the bottom of the DeGrazia post. I thought Penny might like to see him...he has very soulful eyes ; )
I can't insert a picture into my commment, so I had to do an update in the post itself...

OMG - you keep outdoing yourself! How about my little bird (seen right here) as a special order. Really. Not joking. All of these new creations are GREAT!agyqnu

forget it lynda. i tried to get gary to do a bird for my mom for x-mas and he refused (he also refused to do a moose as well) but it seems like everyone else gets their requests approved from gary so your bird might get approved too. am i a little paranoid?

Love the ghosts! You've got time to do a whole little reign deer series before the holiday madness starts.
