a tale of two teapots: first of twenty fifteen!

Look at that groovy item up there...and down there!  Nice start to the year, I think.
I am fiddling with leaf carving ideas and how to glaze them....there are a few possibilities I like and these turned out well....
you think, in theory, that January is gonna SUCK EGGS, what with the Halloweenthanksgivingchristmashannukahnewyear holidays over, and it is at most ten degrees outside and snowy...but DANG, you have all this relaxed freedom to MAKE and think and innovate, without the pressure to mail a mug to Michigan by noon (although I always LOVE to mail mugs there, or anywhere else, things are a little quieter these days).
These both happen to be on sale at my etsy shoppe, too, click HERE! (Valentine's = one month away!)

Have a great weekend!
