Teapot time

It was all about teapots today.  The weather the last few days has been glorious so I have had long days in the studio.

Last week I got an invitation to a teapot show in Florida next month.  They mentioned the pedestal teapots specifically so today I made 3 different pedestal teapots.  The one on the left was a new idea.  I thought it turned out pretty well.  I will pick the best one for the show.
I also got a pretty exiting phone call this afternoon.  My hummingbird teapot won 2nd place at the Best of Nature show at Falling Rivers Gallery.  This was quite a surprise since this show does not have a 3D division so I was going against all types of art.  The show runs for the next month with the reception on April 11th.

My favorite thing to make is teapots so it's always fun to have a reason to make them and today really was the best kind of day.

Last week was the first pottery class at Ciel.  It was alot of fun introducing everyone to making mugs with slabs.  I posted photos on my Facebook page.  If you are interested in taking a class, check out the previous post for details.
