Gorgeous little teapot! The glaze is lovely.

Just dropped by to let you know my website and new blog are up. :) Yay! Still have mucho work to do on the website but at least it's a start.

Also, I didn't de-friend you on facebook. I actually deleted my account.

That's all for now. See you in cyberspace.

I LOVE that teapot, but find myself wondering what would happen if you tried something that would give a lighter appearance (maybe) to the handle. Would it work to braid three smaller strips into a handle? (like braiding three elephant tails?) I keep trying to visualize that. What think you?

That is one kick azz glaze. You are quite the glaze master. :)

This it the best teapot yet!!!! An elephant with cheery chutzpah and glaze to die for!!! Plus the "dents", the handle, the spout!!! You got it all!!!

I love Penny and the lily pads! Could you send me a copy of that photo?

We were studying Monet's Water Lilies in class yesterday; his are artistic, but yours are the real deal! Korea has this Buddhist/Lotus thing, but they don't know what real ones look like, just the crepe-paper ones that everyone makes for Buddha's Birthday.
