White stoneware, thrown on the wheel as a "chopstick" jar and then altered into a teapot. I added the little hand-shaped flower knob. Handles coil and flattened. Spout wheel thrown. Fired at ^6 in an electric kiln. Laguna's Dynasty Red and Peach Blush, Duncan Concepts Bright Kiwi as the underglazed leaves and stems.
This came out really nicely for a test set; next time everything is going to be bigger. I plan to make four cups and saucers, sugar, creamer, teapot, and a couple of serving platters. Maybe even a cake stand or two. We'll see.
