This piece is one that I made in my beginning ceramics class last semester. The assignment was to make a teapot using slabs. Unfortunately, the spout doesn't work too well and tea would go every where, but it was fun to make.



This is a shot with all the cups stacked up. Together, the whole thing is about 21 inches tall.

Wow this is such a great and unique idea! Very well executed! Don't feel too bad about the spout though, it is hard to find a teapot that doesn't spill.


Oh, and your avitar weirds me out.  Tongue It was okay the first time but over and over again is crazy!

This is way cooler than any of the teapots made in my pottery class.

Wow!  I want one.  I love how this stacks up to look like the neck of the guitar.  Great job.

Fantastic idea!   I love how the body of the guitar really mimics the shape of a teapot.  I could see this design mass-marketed, it's very very clever.

That is awesome!:D And it doesn't have to pour, it's more of a piece of artwork rather than a functional item I would say. So clever how you've stacked the cups up to make the neck of the guitar. Brilliant:)

What a wonderful project! I often experiment with sculpting, but I'm really more of a wheel sort of potter!
I love how its in blocks! I will have to share this!

Very clever! I like how the strap is the handle and the cups stack to make the neck of the guitar! Great job!
