Million Dollar Teapots?

I finally mustered up the courage to glaze the teapots I posted about a few weeks ago, so I thought I’d share the results with you. I took some risks on two, and played it safer with the other two, and all in all, I’m pretty happy with the results. Personally, I like the turquoise one best, but I’d love to hear your thoughts!

I really had some fun decorating the grey and the turquoise one—using a combination of brushed and inlaid under-glazes, and dipped and trailed glazes.  I’m looking forward to playing with these techniques even more in the next little bit, hopefully squeezing out a few more pieces for my MFA portfolio.  I anticipate some more late nights ahead…

  1. Naomi, my favorite is also the turquoise. I love ” the stitching”!. Nest fav is the top right hand corner which may or may not be black…whatever it is the shape and glaze look great together.

    • Thanks Sheila! I really love the stitching too… it’s a new thing and one I plan to continue. The top right hand corner one is actually purple (more of an eggplant I guess), although it doesn’t show up well in the photo.

  2. LOVE your teapots Naomi — good luck with the shows– you are doing a GREAT job and I love your styles and colours — Love Aunt M
