2010 Teapot...finally!

As some of you may know, I only make one or two teapots a year. Usually this happens in January after all the show mayhem. This year was different for some reason. I was very busy with orders right in the beginning of the year, hence I didn't have the opportunity of making one till this summer.
I had this particular teapot sitting on my shelf for a year with an idea brewing in my head. The vision came to me as soon as I bought it. It reminded me of something out of the Jetsons. It gave birth to the Space Girls teapot. The detail is a combination of canes,carving and inlaying, and other polymer clay techniques to come up with the finished product. It is also sanded with 5 grades of fine sandpaper. The finish is so smooth that it's a shame you can't experience it through a photo.

Coming back to the Blog world!

I've been on a very long hiatus from this blog. Life moves on and this was low on my priority list. But now with the urging of my good PC friend, Gera....I'm going to attempt to jump back onto the Blogging Bandwagon once again!
