Teapots

You may have noticed that I don't make very many teapots.  That may be because I don't sell many tea pots, that may be because I don't make too many teapots.  You see the obvious problem.

Actually, I just don't think about making teapots very often even though I know I should.  Then I read this post by Whynot Pottery and thought.  I can make a teapot a month or a few every other month.  That would be fun and keep it fresh.  I figure I could come up with some fun ideas for teapots as well as making some very classical ones. 

Here's a nice, simple one I made recently.

  1. I had never had a teapot before and Gerry gave me one for Christmas last year. I like to take it to my studio with me and then I'm not running back up to the house for another cup of tea. I got my hair cut last week, and they brought me a two cup teapot and a little tea bowl and it was such a nice treat. Hey, a new venue for selling teapots, hair salons, who knew!

    1. Tracey, that's a great idea. What a nice thing to do for the hair salon's customers.

    2. I like this! We have one at the local B&B that gets a lot of use. It has brought us customers and orders for one like it.

    Love their original flavor best.

    1. You do make a lot of teapots, Gary. You should be an expert.

  4. I keep saying I will make teapots and I never seem to get to it. perhaps I should set the same goal, at least one a month, then at least I'd have twelve in a year. I find them difficult to make and it takes me forever to make one hand built though. Maybe I'll think of a less complicated form as a standard one and then go from there.

  5. HI Lori,
    Thanks for linking over to me- I had to go and read what I said and then it showed up other post with teapots...I do need to make more of those. I tend to make at least 4 and no more than 6 at a time. 4 is better because by the time I hit 6 I am not in love with them.... and need to move on.
    best of luck playing with them!

    1. Hi Meredith, four at a time sounds like a manageable amount. I'll try that.
