"It's Lonely Out In Space..."

Steuler West German Ceramic Pitcher with "Planetary" Glazing of Aquas and Gunmetal (LEO Design)

A couple of weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of seeing Elton John in Pittsburgh—one of the stops on his "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" world tour.  Naturally, he sang "Rocket Man" among the many hits he performed that night.

In recent years, I've found myself intrigued by (and collecting) ceramics pieces which bear a resemblance to faraway planets or moons—whether actual or fanciful.  This piece, made by Steuler in West Germany, has a glaze which brings to (my) mind an otherworldly, gaseous planet, perhaps one hanging in the background of a rough-and-tumble Star Wars set piece.  "D'you pack your bags last night, pre-flight?"
