With the internet, it is so much easier these days to get a chance to look at the work of other potters.  I am often amazed by the ingenuity and originality of some of the work I have come across.  What is the most unique or quirkiest piece of functional pottery you have ever seen, either in real life, in print or on the internet?  What made it so special?  Who was it by?

George Ohr mystery mug where the rim of the mug had holes and the handle was hollow. Close off the right holes and sip through the open hole. More work than I care for for a morning coffee.:)

That sounds like a "puzzle pot" usually for beer.
