there will be lots more later today...



(teasets by Gary Rith)
OK, so I was chatting with Stevo the other day about TOAD glaze and these particular highly textured, and I hope, dynamic looking teapots. The first of the bunch is in the header, this is the second out of the glaze firing with diagonal slashes and then I was showing Stevo how I facet (or is it flute?) the pots.....
So like I have been saying, working in different directions here every day, Bear on some pots, shaped and textured pieces on the other hand....
Today is a get the act together day, and I will likely be posting many more times...:)

You've got such a range in your portfolio! Very exciting new pots. Very different directions, but both very very unique and most excellent! :-)

I love your mugs with the little drawings on them and the teapots are very attractive.

I wish I could send one to the President who loves tea.. He may need some camomile by now with health care and Afghanistan on his plate.

Those are wonderful. I almost like it better unglazed - the shape really stands out.

These are just swell. Yes. Mad Hatter teapots.
You should include mercury in your glaze...induce the crazies in people.

These are awesome. I LOVE the shade you have with the green/blue. So great.

I really like both these teasets, and love that faceting.
They look as though they might come alive.
