My pottery skills have improved beyond my expectations.  As per usual I have become a bit obsessed.  I find myself running over to the studio every chance I get.  Nothing else matters or exists while I am there and there is nowhere else I would rather be.  I've challenged myself to master the cylinder, throw off the hump, make lidded vessels, throw multiples and collar a vase.  I overcame my fear of lifting a pot right off the wheel and I rarely have to re-wedge clay anymore.  This teapot is one of my earlier pieces, but I am so happy with the results. 
 The moment of truth is always the glaze.  I love the shape, but a bad glaze could ruin and disappoint.
