Well it is cold outside! Again!! Luckily the clay studio is heated. I've been making Chinese Teapots. Here are photos of the teapots in the "leather hard" stage. They are headed for a bisque firing very soon. I also included a photo of a finished teapot to show what they will look like when glaze fired and fitted with a bamboo handle. Hope you enjoy the photos!
