Rockin’ teapot

picture-159.jpg                            Opaque white glaze with metal handle attached with lugs. 

My latest series of designs explores the archetypical form of the common teapot by curving the base and rounded edges.  It rocks when pushed and almost tips over but stops just in time.  I explored different handles and glazes to see what worked best visually and functionally.
