Yet another refugee from the back of one of my unfinished shelves of pots. I seem to have some dim memory of experimenting with slip with slip trailing, but that is only a guess.
I've decided that a cool thing about pots like this is that I no longer have anything invested in them so am free to experiment with glazes. I'm going to once fire this after glazing it with Spectrum Clear, decorations and a coat of lightly (I hope) tinted clear.
Originally there were no tea bags so all tea was brewed in a pot. I still use only loose tea, although I do have some filters on hand so I can make my own bags for travel. I brew a good sized pot every morning, no matter the weather. On a hot afternoon like today I make frozen tea coolata with almond milk.
I use fine mesh baskets that fit inside my pots. Tea baskets have a long history. I am thinking about making them to go in teapots that I make.
Lori has some nice thoughts about teapots on her blog today. Gary has a beauty in emerald green!
Take a look at Lori's and Gary's blogs for more neat teapots. Any other teapotters out there? Let us know you're around!
Enjoy our sunny summer days. As always, thanks for stopping by..........*s*
