When you spend the summer working in a studio with non stop visitors with all the stupid questions you start to second guess what is coming. I made these 8 lb jars and thought oh god they will ask what can I use it for? Well I ain't going to write cookies on them so I figured I'll turn them into teapots and then they will get it. Yesterday while I was putting them together they kept asking if you could actually put tea in them?
I rarely put overhead clay handles on teapots but I tried fooling around springing them off key. It is kinda like building an arch. I guess with the kilns and pizza ovens I've been involved in this past 3 months it was bound to creep into my work.
This is that pink porcelain I have been using. I hope the support for the arch holds up on the handle.
