A pottery blog of the Anagama in New London Minnesota, and other thoughts of Craig Edwards on wood fired pottery

Friday and feeling the winter blues, and then it started snowing. Snow is one of those little amazing miracles of nature, like when grapes turn to wine. Snowfall is a guaranteed mood elevator, redeemer of winter. I started doodling about with snowflake designs and a teapot started to develop. The final pot has no semblance to a snowflake, but what are you gonna do.
Here is the form for the body of the teapot.
The top and bottom of the body with the spout on the left.. gotta look to see the spout.
Below are the handle parts, spout and the body put together. You'll have to wait for the next post to see the finished teapot as the blog can only do four pics at once. Well, time to do some chores outside, a beautiful day, sunny and 34F. A storm is brewing in the Dakotas that may bring another 6-12" of snow... yikes!!!
