This weekend I finally got all the teapots assembled! I always forget how long it takes me to get everything pulled, thrown, and assembled :P I think this one is my favorite so far; even though they are a royal pain to make, I love the way over-the-top handles look!
This little guy is the one I plan on carving in some manner. I will try not to just make stripes :P
The following two I had to re-do :P I made the spouts, wasnt sure I was happy with them, then looking at the pictures later that night I realized I really hated them. So I went in the next day and fixed them up a bit. The original spouts were just too big for the pots, and made them look really unbalanced. I am much happier with the final result.
This one ended up being so tall it should be interesting to see what it looks like with a wicker handle.
This is a special treat for any readers out there, you get to know a secret no one else does! For a couple years, whenever I make a teapot, I write a little something under the spout, usually 'Bless this Teapot." I am not particularly religious, but I have always associated tea and teapots especially with comfort and saftey, and I just like the idea of putting a blessing on a teapot :) It's my little secret, and no one else will know unless they break their teapot :P
Birthday Kitty loves to sleep in places she probably shouldn't sleep. I broke the mug of Patrick's that I had, and he offered to let me have one of the ones he sent down for Art of the Pot. After I picked one out, Kitty decided the box with the other two cups would make a great bed, and clearly ceramic cups are comfy pillows :P
