             Teapot #20 with matching teacups. Seaworld on earthenware. 
             The top of the spout needs to be still higher to prevent 
             water/tea from spilling out when it is full inside (Karen's insight). 
             The teacups don't exactly match and one is way too thick 
             on the bottom. But besides all that, the top is glazed shut! 
             Nonna Hall, our pottery teacher, was very helpful about 
             how to avoid that: be careful of applying glaze to thick 
             near the waxed edges, but if it is too thick, feather (smooth 
             and thin) edges. Not to be totally negative, I do like the shape.
