... i don't usually make new year resolutions but i suppose mine is to get over the whole anti-lid thing and get comfortable with it in 2011. last night i threw a teapot body and the lid (i think it actually fits!). tonight after finishing some porcelain tumblers i tackled the spout.
after three failed attempts and a near temper tantrum, jeff decided he should watch what i was doing and give some pointers. i was amazed at my success after he told me what i needed to change...
here are two spouts that i kept and the teapot body is behind it... i am most likely going to use the spout on the right.
here is one of jeff's side handled teapots that i used to make a decision on my lid. i will probably throw a similar style knob on my lid.
it's such a beauty... even with my clay finger prints all over it! someday i will make teapots almost as beautiful as this one.
