Hand Made Teapots

1. Teapot, $195 plus shipping. This teapot was fired twice. The green glaze has a tendency to turn an ugly, bubbly matte pink, which is how it looked the first time it came out of the kiln. Firing it twice is a bit of a risk because the glaze can be blasted too much with the soda and get washed out. The second firing worked great this time. This glaze tuned the beautiful green that I hope for every time I use it. The subtle dots are where I applied wax resist.

2. Teapot, $195 plus shipping. I know most people use my teapots as decoration, but they are made to be used. There's a built in strainer on the inside and they pour beautifully.
