Teapots

Posted Leave a comment

These came out of the big kiln this morning. They have only gone through their first firing. I will glaze and fire them again. These are small teapots, only about 3 inches high. I used the clay extruder I bought off of EBAY last year to make them with. I made the two part die […]
