Teapot, I believe you’re done, and I think I’m happy.

This was a bloody fun piece to do.

It might be named “Need a Lift?” but I’m not sure.

Materials: titanium, vitreous enamel, sterling silver, copper, mixed media.

Dimensions: 6 x 6 x 4″

Made for the teapot show at Morgan Contemporary Glass Gallery (Pittsburgh PA), opening April 7th, but will be shown this weekend at Bayou City Arts Festival in Houston this weekend, and Art City Austin the following weekend.

Cheers, goodnight. Driving off to‚Äč Houston TX tomorrow!

Alright, little teapot. I’m tired, the cat is tired. We’re done for the day.
Tomorrow: aging (the teapot, I’m already doing that), properly setting the two domes, and some finishing touches on the metalwork. Should finish it up.

It was meant to be a simple little teapot, and I got into it more than intended. Happy, though. Goodnight.

Materials: titanium, copper, vitreous enamel, sterling silver
Dimensions: 6 x 6 x 4.5 inches
