They're all nice pieces but this one is my favorite. Looks like you've got a real talent for turning pottery. I know from experience that it's harder than it looks. Great job!

Awesome work Bears!
You've just inspired me to get back on my pottery wheel and make use of it lol

This is sweet stuff, hope to see more of your work! :)

Beautiful work, Bears! The green glaze and the shell tea caddy are my favorites. Happy 'throwing'! (i believe that's what they call it, yes?) :)

I love your pieces, bears :) The tea caddy in particular is gorgeous.

You are inspiring me to take a teabowl-making workshop that I just heard about!

Ditto Henley, I love this one. I've wanted to take a pottery workshop for a very long time, maybe I should move it up on the bucket list.

I'd love to see what you make and swap ideas! I've only been doing this for just over a month, so I need a lot of practice/guidance.

Interestingly, I have a cup that looks just like that. It's just taller, more rounded than open.
