This month Freya challenged me with a teapot! The four parts (main body, spout, handle and lid) were stitched together at the leather hard stage. It is pouring like a bubbly unpredictable fountain (by which I mean it's not a great pour). I glazed it in transparent, applying splashes of manganese with a toothbrush.
|Freshly stitched together, |
spare handles in the back.
|A generous spout|
|I pierced a hole for the spout in the main body |
with some sort of apple corer
|This first teapot is for my mum!|
|The lid is fired in place on the main body so that they expand |
or contract together; I had to hit them with a big stone
to separate them after the kiln firing.
