Owl Tea Pot


Thanks to Caroline Gilder who has supplied another Monday evening teapot for the blog!


This one was also made under Myra’s brilliant tuition, especially like the blue glaze on the front picking out the detail. Myra suggested adding a little cobalt carbonate to a clear stoneware glaze and it made this lovely colour. I shall definately be adding it to future pots. My next project is a large lampbase, also in an owl design so we are getting quite ambitious for a group of beginners! I hope you like it too.

Many thanks

Orange Peel Tea Pot

Nerina Cressey from Myra’s Monday evening class had kindly supplied a picture of her amazing ‘Orange Peel’ Teapot. The class are currently designing and making teapots and there are some really nice ones nearing completion.

Nerina’s is cobalt black with a textured ‘orange peel’ design. It is 6 and a half inches high and 11 ins from end of spout to end of handle.  She thinks it would probably provide tea for the entire group!

Thanks for sharing Nerina, I think its brilliant!
