Last week Gary said he was thinking about Teapot Tuesdays. Being a tea drinker to the point of addiction I think this is a great idea. Lori Buff has also posted a pretty fine teapot on her blog.
I make a pot of tea in the morning. If I want more later in the day, I use a smaller pot or brew with a tea basket in a cup. I only use loose tea so I have a number of devices to make tea in the cup.
This little pot is about the size of a grapefruit. It holds one very generous cup of brewed tea. It's made of white earth. The blue background was put on the green pot and fired. I then glazed it in Spectrum Clear, painted the decoration on the raw glaze and fired it to ^04.
I'm fairly pleased with the final product. I'll probably make some more this summer.
Everyone should hit the links and visit to see more teapots

I just had a doc appointment cancelled. She, fortunate woman, is on call this week and will be spending her day at the hospital. Gosh, I'm glad I don't have the hassle of a day job anymore!
Today has been rainy and windy with dropping temps later in the day. The cancelled appointment and the lousy weather have given me the gift of time to spend in the studio.
Enjoy your day and, as always, thanks for stopping by........*s*
