TOAD




(pottery by Gary Rith, drawing by somebody else)
I was a little surprised--a lot of people weighed in on the doodled cups below! I have a whole bunch more, pics posted later.
I am ALSO working on this other sort of idea, multi-ridged and textured stuff with my newly developed glaze I call TOAD. Lookin' GOOD. Here is a wee little TOAD joke:

What happens when frogs park illegally?

They get toad.

This Toad color is lovely. It reminds me of oil in a puddle. In a good way.
I love that teapot!

niiiiice glaze... looks a bit like burnished bronze.
and i like the teapot too.
When i get my multimillion lottery win, I'll have a house with plenty of room for me to collect pots.... at the moment, any new thing brought in causes the walls to bulge further and creak alarmingly.

The mule has suggested i get rid of some stuff, but.... where do I start?
it's all precious, or might come in handy some day.
