Wow, Pres, those wedding jars are fabulous. I hope neither couple ever gets divorced because there's gonna be a nasty custody battle! Seriously, a wedding gift that wonderful is well worth the wait, as I'm sure your friends would agree.
And thanks, Rebel, yeah it's really a teapot. The head and chest of the farthest girl lifts off so water can be poured in.. I love your your carved piece and the one with flames too. It made me want to create something with flames! When I was a wood carver, I made a wall piece with an angel hanging upside down over flames. The first time I took it to a show, a woman stood just outside my booth and yelled "blasphemy". I pointed out that just above the flames was a spigot and holy font in case the flames got too high. She was not amused.
