I thought a little humour might light the mood a bit.  "Johnny Vegas" is/was a potter under his real name of Michael Pennington.  Extremely talented fellow, but got bad marks  due to his choice of subject matter.  He then got into comedy.

 

I hope you guys enjoy. HIs 60 second teapot.

 

 

 A version of this pot is in the Victoria and Albert: http://collections.v...t-vegas-johnny/

 

There's another video of him "potting" on stage, but it's perhaps a little too graphic (he does something colourful with a tall centred lump of clay and some beer) for sharing on a public forum.

Well Marcia, to me, beer is just a glorified, carbonated vinegar, so adding a bit to the throwing water, should be right up your alley...

Oh yes, Babs is so right about Coopers ... the best beer ever and you can only get the real deal in Australia ... A great reason to visit that wonderful country.
