Adam and Eve

(Gary Rith and a pair of pots)
Didn't want yesterday's big pot to be lonely, so made it a friend. Some potters might shake their heads and say: "I've made bigger!". But I don't often go big, and this is with just one ball of clay, not two (the big clay challenge is how big can you go with just one ball of clay, without adding anything?).
I needed it anyway, the way my kiln loads up there would have been an empty tall slot next to Adam, so I had to make Eve to fill the space and keep him company.

I love that you named them.
And y know what 'they' say...bigger isn't always best...however those are great. what colors will they be???

Are Cain and Abel next?

Oh, and, Eve? Don't eat the apple! And Adam? If you do take a bite of it yourself, you and every man since should not blame Eve for your choices.

Um, Gary, do you sense there is more going on here in California than meets the eye?

Heh. (?)

I was thinking about that just now, as I sweated the rower.
I am thinking spring green and blue.

Very nice, Gary! I would imagine that maximum pot size would be dictated by the size of you kiln?

Ha, an Eve for Adam. Good idea. They both look amazing.

Tink said...

I think spring green and a lovely blue would be perfect!
How could anyone break up such a wonderful set?

And Cheri, you've got EXACTLY the right ideas goin' on.

The rest of the comments? I'm not gonna touch with a ten-foot pole.
