I'm a Little Teapot

As you may know, dear readers, I take pottery classes. There are two main methods of making a useful item out of pottery…throwing or building. Two semesters ago I blogged about the throwing class I was in....this is my greatest accomplishment...


Pretty pathetic, uh? I put those funny little feet on that sad little bowl for NO purpose other then to make it more interesting.

Nice try.

Foodie, however, is an excellent thrower and here are a few of her beautiful masterpieces…



Foodie's daughter's creations...also very good! Must be in the genes.

Being a scrappy sort, I am an infinitely better clay builder than thrower and my final project last semester was a teapot (gasp) and this – dear readers – is the result…

OMG…isn’t it tooooo cute! Not bad for my first teapot try. Her name is "Ms. Potts" - isn't that sweet...and original. And, best of all, it works...I am drinking a cup of tea steaped in it as I write.

I will make another teapot and take photos of the entire process....facinating and pretty easy once you know what to do!

Very cute. You should make a companion teacup and call it "Chipper" :o)
