             Teapots 42 and 43. The top one is sponged cobalt wash over 
             Randy's Yellow, white clay. I was attempting to imitate 
             something I saw in a magazine. Their cobalt was much darker.
             Teapot 43 is Seaworld on white clay. It looked quite successful 
             until I discovered a crack on the lid. It's also very heavy. 
             I still like it despite the flaws. The next thing I need to work on 
             is cleaning up the spout holes: they're often clogged or ragged. 
             But it's really hard to squeeze your hand inside to clean it. 
             And the spouts could still stand to be higher.
