POT # 3
I have forgotten who made this delicate, little teapot. If someone out there knows, please tell me. I purchased this teapot at the 2006 Cone Box. This teapot appears to be hand built from porcelain slabs. It has five concave sides, coming to sharp points at the seams. The surface has been chipped/loop-tooled away. The lid is cut from the body of the form and a star shaped flange has been added. The fit is not terrific, but does the job. The side and top handle are created from slabs...textured with lines and added. It is glazed white or clear inside, but the outside surface appears to have been sprayed with stain. The base 'cushion' upon which the teapot sits is fashioned from the same clay. It is heavily textured with pressed lines. The base is glazed and relatively smooth considering the texture. The teapot is 3.75 x 2.75 x 2.75. The cushion is 3 x 3 x .75". Together they are 4.5 x 3.75 x 3".
