time marches on...




(pots by Gary Rith)
While the sweeps were going on, OF COURSE I was busy! My Minnesota pal Newt asked for some extra big pasta bowls, with frogs and dogs, and here are some of the bowls with frogs. This mug? I was fiddling around, and this got me excited--the descending ridgy shape and the stepped foot.
Blahblahblah...nothing more boring than a potter talking pot shapes and glazes...

I LIKE that mug shape, Gary.

Newt said...

That mug shape is TOO cool and the bowls are beautiful. And they look like they are the perfect size :-) 1/4 of a chair! You rock my friend!

Newt said...

Oh, and hubster likes them too!

Cool beans! The bowls are adorable! With the froggies on lilly pads!

I like the shape of that mug. That's what I want too -- an unusually shaped mug, large enough to hold two hot cups of coffee (or close) and the cow and the sunshine thingie!!!

So excited!

And, congrats to Newt!

The mug is faboo! The handle's not too small either. I always find that stepped foot products have teensy, weensy handles and then I can't get my hand in there.

Oh and nice touch with the frogs being on their own little lily pads!!

Love ALL of the critters you do, and the mug is great. I actually like footed mugs, they seem more stable some how, when I go to set them down. The caterpillers below turned out very nice too.

Look at those cute froggies!

Wait, you weren't just sitting around laughing at all our jokes?
