BAMF* teapot....

Stevo was over here a week or two ago and I was trying to tell him how difficult it is to make a CORDUROY sided teapot (like PANTS) and then I told him that I wanted to go one further with corduroy and make it on the diagonal. TRICKY alright. Here is a small teapot experiment, totally BAD AZZ, eh*?
Speaking of Stevo I have this special project to finish for him--dang its getting close to Christmas I better hurry and....
well, then there is the missus. The Missus is a Cornell writing student and let's just say that there is a final deadline this morning and she was up doing something, including using a hole punch, and I probably didn't go to sleep till after one. That is rather latish for me. And Penny beagle, per usual, wanted to get up earlyish.
STILL, should prove to be a totally busy day full of fun making stuff and making cookies and did I mention a gallery in Colorado wants to show my work? That could mean, since it is a ski resort town, a long WINTER retail sales season, which is usually dead for me......
