Very Old Tea Pot

This is a Teapot I made when I was about 16. It was inspired by a visit to Michael Leach's workshop when I was about 13. I have never had the courage to add a cane handle, But I think I will start looking for one this year. I had a Bisc firing on Saturday which went well. I have a weeks holiday now so I should be very busy in the workshop over the next week.

Hi Doug, I just measured the tea pot. it holds just over 1 and a half pints. It's an ash glaze that I made myself. It was one of the pieces I took to Harrow College, when I tried to get on the Harrow course. Mick Casson said my work was good but I was too young, to cope with the rest of the course, as the average age was 27 and I was only 17. He told me to come back when I was 21, but by then I was married with a daughter. Don't ask. !!!!

I love Mick Casson - a truly great man - but in this context, what an arse! That's a great tea pot.

Time to start planning for the show season.

Show Time is fast approaching it's that time of year when you have to think about how you want to present yourself to the world! ...
