the most fancy teapot you have ever seen in your life

Many of you will recall that this summer I started making car jars...wheel thrown parts assembled into a sculptural car shaped pot. Its complicated.
I was sitting there with the wife having the beer:
she: why are you sitting there with a distant and dreamy smile?
he: I just got an idea!
she: ???
he: OK, what if you made a car teapot...that rolls for real???

And I did. Wheels not attached in this pic, windows not finished and not fired yet, but this gives you an idea of its awesomeness....and fired and finished car jars in the lower pic....
