The next teapot adventure starts now...

A month or two ago, we had decided to pursue vases for our next Improv venture. However, an opportune suggestion from a friend has caused us to re-visit teapots yet again. Here are our choices for the next step. We have exchanged finished teapots and will each make two other accessories for each teapot not of our own creating. Follow along. The due date will be mid-April.

Life is good...

What a great promotion...

As I was gathering our teapots back from Columbia, I saw that Donna Green & Southern Pottery Workcenter & Gallery want to promote handmade in a positive way - "Choose Local Craft". Wonderful!
