This simple, squat jug has become a favorite Otto form for me, and they certainly did a variety of jug forms. This appears to be one that's available in a wide variety of glazes, many of which are fairly difficult to find. This has a thick red drip over a mottled gray with white specks. The glaze name may be "granite" (spelled granat or granit in German). Otto currently makes a red over white drip with that name, but I can't confirm that this was an earlier version with the same name. Such was suggested to me several years ago, but I haven't found confirmation. Of course, that doesn't affect the aesthetics, only the language. With or without a glaze name, it's a very strong piece.

Buying, Paying, and Such Things

You may notice that we don't have a checkout where you can just click for your goodies without so much as saying hello. Well, we want people to say hello, ask questions, even hope for a better deal. Long ago, I told stories for 7 hours (free refills on coffee), so "impersonal" just isn't my style. Click on one of those "E-mail" buttons. I can't handle as much coffee as I used to, so the stories will be fewer.

These days, Paypal is about the easiest payment method around, but we still take checks, even cash. No Monopoly money, nothing printed up in your basement, no chickens, etc., but otherwise we're fairly flexible. If we can put it in the bank without anyone getting in a tizzy, we'll probably take it.

Please take time to stroll through the site. Sorry we can't offer you a cup of coffee or tea while you're looking, but maybe you can take care of that yourself. Just don't spill it on the keyboard. And if you run into any questions along the way, there should be an e-mail link on every page, so just click and ask.

Hope you'll enjoy our "sing the body eclectic" approach (with apologies to Walt Whitman). As always, proceeds go to support our creditors, my spouse, our cats, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.
