Teapot Tuesday TWO: bigass teapot, bigass bagels and bigass blue bowls...

(teapot by Gary Rith)
Teapot Tuseday number TWO, already!  Purists would argue that Thursday a week and a half ago was the first teapot Tuesday...but it was just a warmup.
Check out my big terrier teapot today, it can be yours! For sale now at my etsy gallery!

In other news, I made sure to color coordinate my shirt to this big blue bowl yesterday for the photo shoot (yeah, right!).  That sucker is big.  Before I fired it I was certain it was the biggest bowl I had ever made...and how could I know that??? BECAUSE it fit into the kiln with less than half an inch to spare on each side...which I can't recall before... I don't make bigass pots too often but like to silence the critics by sometimes picking a big hunka clay and showing how big my.... skills is :)
(there are potters out there who delight in competing at making big pots... probably to compensate for their wee little .... imaginations ;)

Finally, I made bagels yesterday... I was in a hyper mood.  I don't drink any caffeine but I am a very hyper person nonetheless.  I walked the dog then ran five miles because I couldn't sit still, then baked bagels and muffins and got dinner ready yesterday morning... all just so I could chill out enough to get into the studio and make pots---which I did then for several hours..... my dad said the other day, quite correctly:
"you're a very peppy person".  Sometimes!  OK, a damn LOT of the time.

YES, I crashed and fell deeply asleep pretty damn early.  I get all excited, like now, when I wanna get up at like 3 or 4 and eat them bagels then wooHOOOO! Next thing you know I am reading at 8pm and asleep at 8:01...
have an awesome Tuesday :)

Every tea drinker needs a BIG pot. Yours is wonderful, fits with blue skies and sun!

P.S. I hope Spike and Penny got fair shares of the bagels!
