Well, I hand-built this tea set in like, November and December for my ceramics class, and just got it back yesterday Cheesy. We were going to get pieced woodfired, but unfortunately, there was incidents both with the teacher completing some thesis work and not having the time to do a woodfire this semester, but when they were ready to fire our pottery over winter break when I was out of the country, the bad weather here prevented them not only from driving to the nearest kiln, but the foot-and-a-half of snow that Oregon never gets caused some damage to the facilities. But eventually, the woodfiring commenced.


the slightly artistic shot of just the teacups


two of them cracked, so I really only have six, but photographing eight looked better ^^


the teapot holds about 4 cups of liquid without spilling. I think it would hold about five if I had angled the spout better, but this is only my second teapot.


the little handle came off fo the lid, but I expect some superglue will fix that.

Thanks for looking, I had a good time making this Smiley

They look awesome!  So earthy.  I'm glad you got a chance to finally use the kiln!  Smiley

I think they look great.  I am in awe of anyone who can work with clay and make something good happen.  My hat's off to you.

BTW:  Where in Oregon are you?

This may not happen, since I have had major surgery on my shoulder.

they came out really nice!
i hope you can use the broken ones for holding stuff, or something.  they needn't be a total loss, right?

I plan on keeping the broken ones, just probably not serving guests tea in them, though they seem to be watertight.

I'm glad you think so, and it's not too hard to learn, but it can really take patience Smiley
I'm near Portland (Newberg, if you've heard of it)

I'm near McMinnville.  I've definitely heard of Newberg.  I drive through it every time I am forced to go to Portland. Cheesy

lovely! instead of superglue, use a two part epoxy, that's what we use in my ceramics classroom, and if it still fits together well you can get it almost so the seam doesn't even show.

Thanks for the advice! will have to see about purchasing some. I may have to sand it down, because the fit isn't perfect, but a little dremeling might help...
