sure. !0 years ago in "ceramic monthly" Skutt has such advertisement. Happy artist behind his, like you said "whole kiln of red teaware (perfect red)". Nightmare indeed, but I personaly just do not like open kiln view at all. From the other hand I like your red pot becuse of his "imperfection" and do not think that more of them can be boring.
That is a lovely teapot--it looks like it was just found at the bottom of the ocean, encrusted with sea life, or perhaps freshly carved from coarse stones. Dramatic. And it is indeed a lovely pairing with that cup and pitcher--from the coarse/dark to the smooth/light, a nice progression.
