badass tall teapot


(teapot by Gary Rith)
I am pretty excited about this thing, just made and fired. I talked about making it last week--a lot of pieces and parts. What am I doing, what is on my mind? Not sure, but something OVER THE TOP. I made another like it yesterday. I understand that we will have the Chinese year of the bunny next month. I made a ton of money a couple of Januarys ago with year of the pig. THEREFORE, I am wondering how I can paint badass bunnies onto black pots...and the usual cute ones too :)

Cool teapot for sure, Gary. Do you make cookie jars? Skulls aren't my thing but critters are. Hope this year is getting off to a big roar for you.

Very cool! Happy New year to you and yours, friend. I'm a bit behind in my wishings. I blame it on the excessive number of retail returns this year! Waiting to hear if the oldest makes the cut at Cornell...!

Does this mean my bunny bowl should be on display all year long? :)
Cute bunny bowl... the very first thing I bought from you!

Also, your new years resolution quote has been added to my "favorite quotes" section on my profile page over on fb.

Just have your bad ass bunny roll over and show his belly like whichever cat that is doing battle with Penny. Looks like fun was being had by all, anyway.
