"all art is quite useless"


(teapot by Gary Rith)
That is the wife quoting Oscar Wilde. This super extra gorgeous teapot just came out of the kiln, everything looks perfect, BUT the spout on this little cutie got sealed with glaze :( So, it is a, um, sculpture. Useless as a teapot.
Dig this turquoise glaze test below, super gorgeous, eh? I have 3 items road testing the glaze in the baby kiln today.
