Octopot by JesIdres Octopot by JesIdres
As some of you, I will be shortly having my second ceramics show in less than two weeks, and I thought I'd share some of my favorite pieces.

The last six months, I've been working a LOT on teapots- as well as a love of octopuses. It was only natural I would combine the two.

High fire white stoneware, custom high fire glaze.

Apparently I am a titanic idiot and didn't know you made pottery.  THIS IS ADORABLE!

Yeah, it's actually something I do semi-professionally.  had to take this past year off due to getting back into school.  I hope I will be getting back into it in January.

Just out of curiosity, do you take commissions for them?  In case I should ever require an Octopot in the future XD  If so, how much would such a custom piece run?

I do, though only when I'm guaranteed to have time in the studio.  Usually teapots run for about $40-55, depending on size and glaze.  ....And how well the kiln is running.  We occasionally have to deal with singed eyebrows.

That's VERY fair and I'm keeping that in mind, because if the occasion ever calls for it this would make a most beautiful gift :)

If I lived close enough to you, I'd go to your show and buy this pot. This is one of the most adorable things I have seen to date.

It's very cute! I never would have thought to use an octopus.

Oh this is just stunning! I love the softness of the wee octopus... and the spout has SUCH charm I can nearly hear it going "HOOT". Also love the knob on the lid. Very distinct. I would be beyond proud to have made such a thing.
WELL DONE.

Oh don't mention it. :P
More and more of your pieces keep popping up in my inbox and I love them all. I'd go to your show if I could.
