Teapot development — Desarrollo de la tetera

Surprising fluorescent results with chromium oxide! The most impressive colours were achieved with higher proportions of alkaline earth metals — B2 20%MgO and B3 20%CaO.

Spring sessions — what a dream!

Play time — in the background there you can see the bricks of an old woodfire kiln which we work next to everyday now — we have currently changed classroom to allow the second year students longer access hours to the primary pottery studio.

In my limited Spanish I was trying to describe how I felt about the two spout options... the best I could come up with was that this option  is more inviting as if you could approach it for a bear hug... where as the other was more for delicate and special occasions— this crazy Australian is saying the pot is like a bear! Whatttt? Expressing myself and feeling understood is a continuing challenge for me here in Spain! One day one day. Although I do feel some lesons/study wouldn't go astray!

So I ask you my friends, what is your vote — which spout did I choose?

    Hello Sophie I was so excited when I came to the computer and found this blog open. Everything looks beautiful to me ! I think it was the short fat spout on the right (photo of 4 spouts) Cheers Sally.

      Hey Sal!! So glad you got to see some of what I have been up to! The teapot has now been bisque fired and is ready for decorating! It was a tough choice for the spout but I actually went for the slim one — for me it has a little more relation with the knob of the lid. It is looking mighty fine — I might have to bring it home for a cuppa at christmas😉 (fruit cake on the side of course!) Much love Soph x
