I've been obsessed with dessert pots lately -- cake stands, sundae cups, banana split boats. I got the first of the series out of today's kiln load, and immediately had to try it out. The dessert, a Mississippi Mudcake, was exactly what I envisioned when I made the piece. I often say that functional pottery is artwork that is only complete when it is in use. I was glad for the chance to finish this one off.
