Here are some photos of the first official teapot that I've made. The motivation came by way of a commission from a work-mate. Stipulations: Side-handled style, matte black, 2 small but not tiny cups. I am very happy to say that after bashing the lid off (stuck pretty well during firing) and then drilling a whole in it (forgot to clear the unfired glaze from the previously made air hole in lid), it does pour well! A minor dribble happens at the end, but nothing to get your knickers in a twist over.
Detail (lid): glaze - purchased as a powder - Northcote Pottery Satin Black stoneware glaze. Claybody - Clayworks JB3 with added speckles
