Next phase!

Just a quick update on the teapots! I finished putting them together today, lids and all! I’ve absolutely loved creating these new forms….and actually felt a bit sad as I laid them on their sides, on a piece of foam, to allow them to dry without distorting the base…..it’s been such an exciting few days!

Here they are with their handles on ….. which i did yesterday, the lids in the background were also made yesterday and so today i trimmed them and added knobs!

Adding the base just does something to the form – completes it i think!

So now I’m thinking about making creamers and sugar bowls to go with them, and maybe mugs…..all inspired by some woman whirling around in a big green skirt…..I ask you !!!

    Hi Linda, Whirling dervishes may have inspired youthis time but the tea pots remind me of forms that you made long ago for a show in a Gallery in Gravenhurst . Perhaps you will remember the specifics. Of course these are so much more refined and made with intention . I’m looking forward to the next step.

    The teapots are terrific. Thanks for posting these pics. We have some Lorna Bailey and Clarice Cliff coffee and tea pots of a similar shape – they’re beautiful.
