Dormouse Teapot


Here's a teapot which holds 4-1/2 cups of liquid, and a mouse on top who is very sleepy.  Check out his effort to keep one eye open.


I actually pulled this handle, and did all the traditional things for a lid which is seated well inside the top so the little mouse won't fall when you're pouring your tea.




It has imperfections.  I've decided to like them.

Glaze is white satin inside, and Mexico outside.

I've added the link to Mud Colony Blog so go see what others have been posting too!

  2. This is adorable! I love everything about it. Very pretty glaze. Do you have large buckets of glaze at your studio?

    1. Yes, we have about 11 glazes, in 5 gal buckets. This community studio is really well stocked. Unfortunately I couldn't get the teapot into one, without the Mexico going on the inside. So I poured that glaze over it, which is why there are some thin spots that were on the upside down side. The interior glaze was first poured inside.

    1. Thank you! I've poured some water to test the spout, and it works beautifully. I do hope someone will purchase it and it can go home to their house for real tea parties!
