communion set?


(pots by Gary Rith)
I have been asked to audition items for a church's communion set, and had these kicking around the studio---approx. what they want. (I have made neumerous communion sets, for Episcopal and Lutheran churches and also items for Jewish services)
I glazed an elephant teapot this morning and I suspect I made a terrible mistake and now it is firing in the kiln and will be a mess tomorrow and as I walked Penny at one I realized how I could have fixed it, way too late of course. Dangit!
I exiled myself from the studio this afternoon in frustration and generalized pissed-offedness and cleaned the cat box and changed the water filter down in the dungeon and now I think I shall make some apple cake.

Yea, but the elephant doesn't HAVE to go to communion Gary, he can stay home! Don't sweat the little stuff!!!

Lovely communion set. Now I'm trying to remember what ours looks like... the set in my mind looks like this only in browns, but that may be from our last church...
Obviously we move too often!

The church ladies were impressed. (I think that they are secretly hoping that the stuff we just got breaks!) Although from what I have seen of it it will not take long.

Thanks again!! You do great work.

Bummer on the bad mood I hope that by now you are feeling better.
