Back at it

Well, I mentioned in my earlier post that I made a tea pot that I hated but nearly everyone else liked. I really do think this pot is ugly. I am embarrassed by it. My SO decided to send pictures of it to her family, and they all want it. 

So I am back to the studio to make tea pots. That don't embarrass me, that I can send out to family. I have all day and about 200 lbs of clay. I will probably do 3 or 4 teapots then get antsy to do something else.

I am pretty excited because I have gotten some glazes stable and the throwing has been going well. Plus I finally figured out a technique to do the handles I like. So I *hope* these tea pots come out nicely. Otherwise I take a hammer to them before anyone else sees them.
