the slides are obviously not top quality but the house is 65% in boxes. these new pots are my attempt to focus on how the handle relates to spout, the spout to the body, the handle to the body etc. i wanted to continue straight lines, bulbous shapes, and quick decision, not cleaning up connection points but leaving them honest and obvious. the large jar (as well as teapots) will have inset lids. the jar is a new idea, simple shape, to be a surface for very dry direct painting.
