Teapot Tuesday

This is a Teaching Pot I made when I was teaching one of my last classes.  I was covering a lot of things with this one:

1. Trimming an odd form
2. Pulling a spout
3. Making ribbon handles
4. Underglaze

They all sort of work together, but that wasn't really the point.  However, it does pour nicely without dripping.

I hope everyone is enjoying the same sunny days we are having here.

As always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*


  1. Whow, I never heard of pulling a spout. Will have to learn that one! This is precious!

    1. Hi Barb....I learned to pull spouts in a Woody Hughes workshop. Once you learn how, it's a great way to make funky spouts.

    1. Hi Gary....You make a pretty cool teapot yourself!

  3. Dearest Suzi,
    You no doubt have been a very dedicated and knowledgeable teacher with so many great examples. This is just one of them and pouring without dripping is an achievement that should be patended!
    Yes, we got our sunshine here down south, it is hot already as we seem to have come from a long and cold winter straight into summer.
    Hugs and love to you,

    1. Hi Mariette....Dripping spouts are the bete noir of teapot makers.
      Everything is blooming at once here which leads to.....allergies!
      Enjoy the day.
