(new hippo teapot by me)
I will always tell you: If I had not become a potter, surely I would be an illustrator or drummer in a rock and roll band. I draw all the time! And, er, when I drive I bang on the steering wheel in time to the radio....
You have seen me make hippo mugs in recent months, right? WHY not go over THE TOP and make a hippo handled teapot???? They are just so round and friendly and funny looking, exactly what I like about pigs. COMIC!
Funny, a good friend writes overnight: "I need a large green teapot...but, um, could you do plain?" and it is like "HAHA of course I can do that too...I will try to hold myself back...but of course you would want me to decorate it with wild blue loops under the glaze too, right?".
