This little porcelain teapot is completely hand made. I start by throwing a body, spout and lid on the potter's wheel. The feet and handle are hand formed. Then the fun begins for me; assembling all 5 parts, ornamenting with floral forms, and glaze firing multiple times to create richly textured and colored surfaces. The spiderwort is a tiny, but colorful, alpine flower and I glazed this one based on the natural colors. The body of the teapot is glazed to suggest lush. mossy, Alpine meadows.
