What an amusing piece of art!
She makes me giggle!
Our aerobics enthusiast is working hard, one hand (the handle) on her hip while the other arm is outstretched (this arm kind of hides the spout which is in the cuff of her T-shirt.
She is on her knees, wearing a very colorful stretchy leotard. Lookin' good!
Man, she sure has a big bum though!
Her head comes off so that she can be filled with water, but really she is too heavy to use as a functional teapot (besides the fact that she has an air hole under her) as I was concerned about her bursting in the kiln!
Wearing white socks and a hair 'ribbon' with gold earrings, she's quite a character!
She's made of low-fire earthenware, red majolica clay.
