  1. I have to admit that I have a lot of curiosity about my fellow forum members and the sort of work they're doing. That being the case, I thought I'd post a few pictures of a teapot that came out of the kiln a couple days ago, and ask if others here would be willing to post pictures of their teapots as well. I especially like to see the teapots other potters make because I think it's one of those forms that require a certain level of skill to carry off. It's a commonly-held point of view that if you can make a teapot, you can probably make whatever else you want to make. Teapots are complicated structures, function-wise, and require a fair amount of thought and/or experience to make well. On the other hand, there are very accomplished potters who don't choose to make any teapots at all, because they require a lot of time to put together, compared to other pots. It's hard to find a decent handmade teapot for under a hundred bucks, and that probably doesn't fairly represent the amount of labor it takes to make a teapot. But for journeyman potters like me, I think making teapots is a good exercise for building skills and insight into the form. Anyway, here's my teapot. I like this one because it developed a lot more crystallization on one side than the other, so it's like having two teapots in one.
