My 1st atempt at a double walled teapot


My 1st atempt at a double walled teapot

10"x9"x7"
2011
Porcelain
Cone 6, multiple firings


I saw a video on double walled pots and thought that it looked like a lot of fun so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I did some searches on etsy and youtube to see what people made and for the most part I was unimpressed. Most were too thick and chunky and the carving was geometric and kinda boring, I figured I could learn from their mistakes.

I love lotus flowers so I decided to do this kinda underwater scene. I wanted to play with the different elemnets that are provided, so placing the carved fish as a kind of middle ground would strengthen the foreground and background.



    I like your pot very much, but that flower on top looks as it will break very easily.
    wow! great work! T

    just found your gallery.  the wind series is amazing, a word i do not use often.

     

    how can a teapot be tranquil?  you have nailed it.
