not exactly a teapot

One of the pleasures of Rainbow Gate (which mercifully has nothing to do with the Rainbow Bridge), but is a hand-painted, mostly one-of-a-kind pottery store in Santa Fe, is not just their plates and bowls and mugs, but the other pieces that are scattered around the store and workshop.  This has a beautifully confused air about it - not a water jug; not a teapot; but a sculpture that maybe was something that went wrong in firing, but that has its own impeccably non-functional identity.
