Tea Cup from Green River Pottery

I was the recent happy recipient of the gorgeous hand-thrown tea cup. The artist is Theo Helmstadter. He displays his work at the Green River Pottery studio in Chimayo, New Mexico.

Not only is this tea cup gorgeous, it's also functional. And beyond that, it takes me back to my sunshine-filled days in New Mexico. It's a grey winter day here in the Midwest, and I'm dreaming of those New Mexico cloudless, brilliant blue skies!

That is lovely! I am so pleased that potters continue to make teapots and tea cups. Not an easy task, but one that I think each potter must master to call him/herself a professional!

I also wanted to tell you that I got a "tetsubin" cast iron tea pot for Christmas that I have been coveting. ANY suggestions?
