Octopot

My octopot is finished! If you can't figure it out, it's an octopot teapot. This was a little complicated to make, keeping the tenticles on etc. I thought it wasn't going to work because the body began to crack and there were cracks all along where the tentacles connected to the body. But, it survived and I'm happy. I don't know why I chose pink and yellow glaze. Maybe just because it was cute. But, the pink glaze ended up having problems and I had to buff it out with a dry paintbrush. But it ended up getting bubbly. It's a bit hard to tell here, but on the inside, the entire thing is bubbly. They're small bubbles though and it's actually kind of cool. No matter what, I still love him. Oh, and that's a fish on his head if you can't tell.

This must have taken forever. This is really great! If you make more pottery in the future, you have to post it.

If you liked ceramics, you could take the summer course "world in a tea bowl". Sadashi teaches it - he is awesome if you didn't know. Check it out~

Yeah, I have more ceramic stuff, it's just not up. I took clay multiples with Sadashi and I wanted to go to Japan with him this semester (he won't be doing the world in a tea bowl class), but I couldn't afford it :/

I had the same situation. I'm hoping I can save up enough money over the next year to possibly go. I wonder why he isn't doing the world in a tea bowl class?

because he's taking the class to Japan. He can't teach a class when he's not there lol

We should try to go together. Then I won't be all awkward and such lol

I think it would be better if you came up with your own first. It's not as fun if you don't come up with it yourself ^^ You'll have more pride in it that way
