This is a very big teapot. Perfect for your next garden party. Click on the box in the right corner for full screen wonderment.
Ever since I built my big-ass wood kiln I've really cut back on the smaller pots that I used to make...bud vases, creamers, little cups and bowls...I used to make lots and lots but they don't go very far in filling the kiln and I keep running out of time to make them,
For many years my work was all meant for the table and many of the pots that I made used less than a pound of clay...a six or eight pound bowl was BIG. I'm giving myself more time to make this time around and I made all those monster pots earlier so I've taken advantage of the last week or so to revive some other ideas.
Back in the Winchcombe days Toff and I would discuss ideas for little pots that would fit the negative spaces left between the pots we usually made.
I've got a bunch of sweet little oval creamers underway as well as the flasks shown here.
