Teapot Tuesday

Better late than never; there are still six more hours of Tuesday!

This is a handbuilt teapot I made over a bowl.  Last year there was an article on CAD about how to make a handbuilt teapot in an hour or so.  I managed to break the lid so I bisqued some new ones.  I'm also doing some work on the yellow.  It seems like a fairly sturdy pot so it should be okay with the refire.

The body of the pot is glazed with Spectrum White Satin Matte #250.  Spout etc. is glazed with Speedball Yellow.  I don't like the way it looks over terra cotta so I am putting down some white, then more yellow.



We'll see, Grasshopper......we'll see.

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

  1. Dearest Suzi,
    With only a few things to fine tune this will make a lovely teapot! Nice for summer to use outdoors!
    Enjoy your summer.
    Hugs,

    1. Hi Mariette....Thanks; we shall see. I've learned not to count on anything until it's out of the kiln and in my hands!

  3. It seems like we are always finding ways to tweak our pots. I'm really interested in seeing what the retired piece looks like.
