carved teapots. collaboration w/ clay co conspirator Diane KW.

soda fired. each piece is about 9 inches high
Now if you could collaborate with a glassblower to blow an inner glass shell into those pots so the tea could be brewed without pouring out the carved holes :D

Function AND Form. :D

Too bad you can't just take some unfinished pieces and hop over to Kilauea for firing over RED! HOT! LAVA!

humble thanks @Ethan

about 3.00 inches wide and 2.25 inches tall

the cool (pun intended) part of this design is as w/ porcelain's heat conductivity, because of the double walled design, your precious fingers will not get burned.

cheers !
