Pottery shrinks during the firing and making therefore it has taken me a while to master a teapot with a good pouring spout and a lid that fits well. I hope you enjoy my teapot as much as I enjoyed making it.
SIZE- Approximate- Height 4 1/4″ (to the top of the teapot)
To Top Of Lid 5 1/2″
COLOUR – Mint Lime green with Sandy Brown and Light Blue
Computer, tablet and phone screens may cause the colour to look slightly different than what it is. See the colour description above.
Occasionally the glaze on the rim of my mugs is slightly rough to the touch. I try my best to eliminate this, but the glaze does what it wants to in the kiln. I do not return items with these as this proves that my mugs are individually made and not mass-produced in a factory.
Ready to ship. I wrap my pottery in bubble wrap, then pack it tightly in the box surrounding it with Styrofoam peanuts. If possible I use recyclable packing material to save them from going into the landfill.
I turned the belly of this teapot on my pottery wheel. The lid was also turned on the wheel making sure it fit into the galley of the teapot. After it dried to a leather hard I trimmed the bottom of the teapot, carved in the design and put on the handle, which I had made earlier in the day. I double-checked to make sure the lid fits the pot.
To avoid the teapot from cracking or handles coming off I dry my pottery slowly under plastic on my drying shelf for a couple of weeks. They are then fired (cooked) in an electric kiln for several hours.
One more step is to put on the glaze, (the colour) then this teapot was then fired in my kiln.
