A rich red glaze on a porcelain teapot with a pulled handle. The glaze breaks to white where thin to provide visual interest.
A functional wheel-thrown teapot with a thrown circular handle on the lid. The wall behind the spout is perforated to retain tea leaves.
The pot was thrown with a UK porcelain and, after biscuit firing and glazing the piece was fired to 1300C to make it impermeable and very durable.
- All of my work is one-of- a-kind and made by hand.
- The pot measures approximately 10cm tall and 11cm wide excluding the handle.
- The bottom is impressed with my seal, the letter P, and its identity number 9627
I love making teapots because, while they take time to make, I am told that they often get used regularly and with pleasure. What a nice way to enjoy something handmade in your daily routine. I like my pots look striking but I also also ensure they have a well-fitting lid.
I am intrigued by the copper red glazes in Oriental ceramics such as those from Song dynasty. I have been trying to obtain the rich red colours that can be found on special pieces. Often the glazes turn out red and white but this is fine where it graphically emphasises the wheel-thrown texture marks as on this teapot. There are only certain parts of the kiln where the red colour can be achieved but customer feedback indicates that it is worth trying.
