Spot of tea

He's done and seems happy... but, alas, he has some tiny surface cracks.
(mumble our mantra: it's only clay.)

The little fish counter weight makes me laugh.

He's tiny!!

(only informal photos for now as my photo set-up is temporarily buried)

Underglaze and glaze

A little fish acts as a counter
weight under the lid.

I underglazed the pot before bisque firing
so the color would be stable when I
added the dots of glaze.

There are about 8 different colors of glaze here.

ready to be fired!

Sweet Tea

Teapot in progress!  

I started this little guy as a demo for my handbuilding classes as they are making... teapots.  Can I finish in time for the annual Open Show call for entries??  Mmmmaybe.
