Red Zinnia and White Pottery Teapot

10x10 Oil on Canvas
Cheri Wollenberg
I thought I would try painting another red flower and teapot today for my daily painting, and believe it or not.... I'm the creator of this white teapot. When I was working on my masters degree in art education I was limited to the art classes I could take during the summer.  I taught classes in high school so I couldn't take too many classes during the week during the school year either.  I attended SWOSU in Weatherford (a great place...by the way).  Since it is a small university,  their class offerings during the summer were limited to pottery and commercial arts.  I opted for the pottery and had a blast.  I was more successful in handbuilding than in throwing on the wheel, but this is one of the few things that managed to survive the wheel and the kiln (laugh).  This painting can be purchased in my etsy store by clicking:  Painting

Beautiful job on your painting and on the teapot-making. I've heard that the kiln can break many a beautiful piece of pottery. Glad your pot survived.
I also like your yellow/red combo in the prior post... very compelling!
