Second Firing OK For Sydney Teapot Show

This afternoon I unpacked the second load of teapots and matching extras.

Hurrah, they all look good.

A bit of smoothing of the bases and they will be ready in time for the Sydney Teapot Show which opens on Wednesday 29 July with the Official Opening on Friday 31 July..

Do try to get along - the creations that people make each year are just amazing! And of course you might like to take one home... Functional and decorative so something for everyone...






One of the teapots in the first firing failed to make the grade with a small crack appearing near the handle... my Fb friends have suggested various ways to 'fix' it but I'll see how I go...

small crack near handle
 I enjoyed the design and made matching cups so perhaps I'll try making another to match the lid.
unsaleable due to crack near handle
Its all part of the game with pottery...

So sorry about the crack, thank goodness for the second one.

Hi Linda thank you and yes, I almost missed it which would have been bad for an exhibition.. I'll have the three needed with this second glaze firing.. photos once the show is open..

Great to hear about your show...a bit far from North Carolina otherwise I would love to attend. I had a teapot with a cool lid, not so great glaze, and kept thinking I'd make another body, but just last week gave the whole thing to a friend who thought the whole thing was great. That's one answer.

Hi Barbara yes just a bit far... maybe one day? I would love a friend to take my slightly less than perfect teapot home.. I'm glad that worked for you :)
