A pottery blog of the Anagama in New London Minnesota, and other thoughts of Craig Edwards on wood fired pottery
Wednesday, February 18, 2009
I've been mentoring some students in making teapots, so they've been on my mind lately. Here is a board of some teapots that I handbuilt a while back. Really not to sure on how to glaze them, so they will have to just sit and patiently wait, and greet me every morning when I arrive at the studio. Here is a nice quote that I ran across. One of the side effects of making teapots, a rather nice side-effect.
“Water is the mother of tea and the teapot is the father. Only if the mother and father are healthy will the tea-child arrive on earth healthy.” -Chinese Tea Philosophy (Tee im Teehaus) - translation by Erika Cilengir
The north wind started to blow today and the temperatures are tumbling. Minnesota weather can be so rude at times. It looks like spring will have to wait still longer. The days are getting much longer so the sun is starting to will out. There is an epic battle of the north wind vs. the sun going on right now... go sun!!!
