One of my teachers told me you could judge a potter by the teapot. You want to make money make a straight sided, flat bottom pot and voila ca ching ca ching. In my youth I made 90 such teapots in a day. Today I made 5 teapots the way I like to make them. Making a rounded teapot with a trimmed bottom, some marks and details takes time. Like my father once told me "It's what you do when you don't have to that makes all the difference!" I made up a glaze last week that was 70% red clay and 30 whiting. It was a lovely glaze that pooled in the recesses and broke on the edges. I was thinking of that glaze when I made these pots.
