             Teapot #18. Floating blue on earthenware.

             Last weekend I attended a great workshop at Greenwich 
             House Pottery in NYC, presented by Deb Schwartzkopf. 
             ( Called "Set the Table," Deb showed 
             us how to alter wheel-thrown plates and cylinders into imaginative 
             configurations. In a slide show, she showed the animal and plant 
             shapes and colors that inspire her. She discussed how to think 
             about making sets — not necessarily perfectly matched sets 
             but pieces that relate to one another in creative ways, in shape 
             and glaze application. Deb said, "There are no rules, just the ones
             you make up in your head." I loved that.
