The Fleet Is In. Now being displayed for the next month at Viterbo University, first floor, Fine Arts Building.
A collection of whimsical, nautical, toylike teapots. Detailed photos can be viewed from my blog site archives.
Each boat is hand constructed using a low-fire terra cotta clay body and finished with commercial glazes.

Stop by and see the fleet, if possible, or view some of the boats in my archives.
