(pottery by Gary Rith)
I made these guys last Saturday as you saw on the all-hippo afternoon, they dried quickly and I fired them in my baby kiln with that load of little crabby clams because the rather excellent people from Hippo.com, no seriously, from hippo.com, were demanding results. You will have noticed that yesterday I was already making more creamers and sugars. The creamer here DOES indeed pour out the mouth, although probably drippily and messily.
In answer to the question you were about to ask: YES there are hippo cookie jars and teapots, but I usually just make a little hippo for the top of the lid. And also yes, within a week I can show you these items, once they're made and fired.
As for price, SUPER EXPENSIVE.
(yeah right, all my prices are excellent)
