Albert Einstein

I finished listening to a fantastic book on tape today (Einstein by Walter Isaacson) while finishing up this giant coil-built teapot. He was an extraordinary fellow. And very quotable. Here’s a few…

“Imagination is more important than knowledge”
“Foolish faith in authority is the worst enemy of truth”
“I can’t tell you what will happen in the 3rd World War, but I can tell you what weapon we’ll use in the 4th……rocks!” (after the U.S dropped the bomb on Japan)

I had second thoughts about making this sweet fat form into a novelty item, but sometimes I need to follow an idea right through to the end. Other times a little spontaneity is called for.This time I planned on making a teapot…and I did.

    High compliments from the king of blogs!
    Definitely going into my wood kiln…sometime this fall. I don’t think I’ll ever fire in the heat of a Virginia summer.
