Why do I bother?





I  make these ruff pencil sketches of pots I want to make and then when I get the pieces made they become something else. I wanted to make a vase. Usually when I plan a vase it becomes a jug. This time the vase became a teapot! The hardest part of resolving this pot was the handle. I am not a fan of the overhead clay handle and making a back handle that looks good on a round bellied pot is difficult. Then the question always is "to circumcise or not to circumcise the spout. My teapots only seem to sell with a circumcised spout so a John Wayne Bobbit is what I did. Thank you for the instruction Lorena.
