a tale of 3 teapots
(teapots by Gary Rith)
SO I made 3 of these teapots, the one above was the first of the series, the one below the 2nd, and the 3rd is firing now. The one above looks superb and it just came out of the kiln, but crappitycrapcrap, small flaw on the front side. I'll turn it around and give it to the missus, it looks wonderful on that side as you see. Sometimes a piece YOU LOVE has a small flaw, and RATS! You gotta keep it.
Its brother below will have an attd. handle. I collect cane and bamboo handles, and have them ready in a box--and then decide which looks best on that type of teapot. My mind is made up and later today you will see a pic of the final piece. Which would you prefer?
