Three New Teapots



Here are three new teapots. They still need to be bisqued fired and glaze fired, so stay tuned. The last teapots I made were similar but with these, I'm no longer flaring the end of the spout. Also, I'm seeing how far I can push the fat portion of the spout, the part just before the opening. The one on the right is furthest along. Also, I like spouts that are smallish relative to the pot. My friend Rick and I had a long discussion about teapot spouts and we both agreed. The spout does have to rise above the lid flange.

I'm still working on two more, similar but with different proportions.

Thanks, I'm into teapots right now so stay tuned, more coming. I'll have some for our Mother's Day Sale.

They look great -- I can't wait to see what they look like glazed!
