Scarlet Poppies Teapot


White stoneware, thrown on the wheel as a "chopstick" jar and then altered into a teapot. I added the little hand-shaped flower knob. Fired at ^6 in an electric kiln. Laguna's Dynasty Red and Peach Blush, Duncan Concepts Bright Kiwi as the underglazed leaves and stems.


There are some issues with it as a teapot. It's a bit thicker and more bottom heavy than I'd like. It's also smaller than I intended, only holds 16 oz.


However, there are a lot of things I did right. The lid fits really nicely. The handle is comfortable for fitting all your fingers in and pouring even with the teapot full. The spout works (a couple of tiny drips but not bad at all) and the strainer works too. I tried it.


So I would say this was a very useful learning experience. And I am far from unhappy with my very first teapot!
