Ongoing Teapots

Bisqued Little Loafers Teapot with Mishima style bees

Add some yellow and black stripes and little dots

Adding a coat of clear over the dots of Designer Liner, I found the dots streaking.  STOP.  Dry them for a few hours first.

So I did.  Then finished the clear glaze gently without any more streaking.  Then waxed over the whole area...
Then dipped and poured matt black over the whole rest of the teapot.
Now just to wait till it is fired.  Come back later!

Details of flower and leaves are below the final coat of glaze
Teapot number two was then glazed in my favorite turquoise variegated combo glaze.
I also have one other teapot to work on soon, with bees somewhere on it  as well.  Then there are honey pots.  And some little tea cups.

Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.  Isak Dinesen


  1. great teaposts; you are getting a lot done

    1. Golly, I feel like I'm not accomplishing much at all...the first teapot was finished on Aug 7 and is coming out of glaze today, the 27th. 2 more to glaze still.

    1. I noticed my bee design is evolving too...nothing static about a bee!

    1. Thanks...I hope people still make tea in teapots!

  4. lovin' those bees, they are so sweet!

    1. Thanks Michele, I mentioned to Gary above that the design seems to be evolving. First bees are more straight lines, later ones have more rounded lines.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
