A Year in Teapots

Teapots, 2011 Series, a set on Flickr. A little review of most of the teapots I made during 2011, for your viewing pleasure on Flickr!  Currently planning a new year of teapots (and other wonderful things), building on some of the things I started doing in 2011’s series.  If you like, let me know what […]

A New Wave of Teapots

Can I say, without seeming self-centered, that my new teapots are beautiful? Let me share.  And please believe that this is not an I’m-awesome post–this is an I-love-my-job and I’m-so-happy-to-be-doing-what-I-love post.  Also, I work alone and don’t often get to share how excited I am when something turns out well–so thanks for letting me! Possibly […]

A Mostly Monochromatic Montage

I’m in preparation for my first art fair (the Schlafly Art Outside Alternative Art Fair) which is exciting to me because I actually had to apply and be accepted to participate.  Yay!  Major confidence-boost.  Also, it’s a juried fair (not that I expect any prizes, being a newbie), and will hopefully be profitable for my […]

Teapot 4

Moreover) I am lazy. Sixth and lastly) Some of my teapots have had embarrassing flaws, and […]

Teapot 5

Teapot #5 is done!  (Yes, we’re a little out-of-order.)  I love its shape and the way the glazes look–but there’s just one small problem. Any guesses as to how I can do this?Yes, indeed.  We have a beautiful teapot with a jammed-tight lid.  I ask you, is there anything more tragic? I have no idea […]

Teapot 3

I know I’m overdue for this post (mostly because I’ve had Teapot 3 for a while and have been hiding it from the world), so forgive me if you were dying to know what happens next in the teapot progression. At the risk of sounding dramatic, it’s time to admit failure. Yes, yes–it looks fine, […]

Teapot 2!

My second teapot of the year is done!  I’m (almost) in love with it. Let me explain–things never come out of the kiln exactly as you pictured them.  Sometimes they’re better; sometimes they’re worse; mostly they’re just different.  It takes a few days to adjust my mental picture of a specific piece to the actual […]
