The Sydney Teapot Show 2015 Sneak Peek

Not long now for the Teapot Show.

I will be delivering my teapots during the week to the Inner City Clayworkers Gallery at Glebe NSW which is just a short bus ride from Central Railway Station.

The official opening is Friday 31 July and the show runs until the end of August...

Do try to get along. The talent and skill and variety of teapots, both functional and decorative are just amazing and well worth the trip.

Here is a peek of one of mine

detail - "Bag End Green" 
Each year there are a choice of themes to inspire entrants and this year one theme is "The Shire Teapot" and yes, you guessed it... all things Hobbit.

I think it will be a very popular theme.  I'll have two entries in that section plus one non-themed teapot which is inspired by local bush flowers.

I'm looking forward to seeing some wonderful pots...

a teapot show must be a grand thing to see, hope you get to post photos and we get to see more than a peak. Ha.

Hi Linda... some of the pots are truly amazing... I'll certainly be taking photos though the opening is always Packed so I'll have to go at a quieter time to be able to have a proper look and take proper photos.

Wish I could be there! We need a clay tour of down under!
I'm with Linda hoping that you will be able to take lots of photos.
Is it bad luck to wish you good luck? Or should I say "Break a leg?"

Anna said...

Hi Smartcat You would be made very welcome in Australia by all the potters you might like to meet. Will certainly be taking photos and posting them here. I'll keep my fingers crossed for luck :)

Hi Katy - thank you... I'll be posting more images once the show is underway...
