I posted a photo of some of the pottery Cheryl has made that we use every day ( http://365project.org/cglist/365/2010-03-09), but she also makes miniature pottery for collectors and "dollhouse enthusiasts." I think they're incredible, and to give you a sense of scale, the whiskey jug (with a real cork!) is just under 1" (2.54cm) tall! Each piece is individually hand-thrown on the potter's wheel. The teapot has a removeable lid and a real spout. Someone once asked her how long it took her to make something like this. She answered, "Forty years..." Indeed.
A true master.

lovely composition. In Samoa I learnt the art of raku pottery although most of my stuff was wall tiles and I really miss having access to a kiln. Its such a great way to relax.
