Scheurich Keramik was better at glazes than forms, but 529 28 is a shape that works, strong if not really elegant. The broad base works as a pedestal, but the opposite of the more common pedestal base that's smaller than the body of the vase. Neither the form nor glaze are especially hard to find, but it's the combination that works so very well in this case. There is a matte or semi-matte black underglaze with the red and black glaze on top. The top glaze isn't distinctly textured, but there is enough variation in the thickness to see if you hold and turn the vase. The thickness is more distinct at the bottom of the red drips, not fat lava, only a tad overweight. The visual affect isn't strong, but it's there.

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.

What's "Gin-For"? Strictly medicinal purposes.
