Teapot Twist…..

Teapots have been so popular through out the years.  We must have had 30 different molds, some plain shaped and some very decorative.  There were teddy bears, fairy, Santa, fish, oh just to name a few.  The plain shapes were always fun, to see how our customers would decorate/paint them was a treat.  On occasion, a teapot would be ordered and never picked up.  That is how I came to have a pyramid shaped teapot on my work table.

I have stared at that teapot for many months and was still having a tough time deciding where I wanted to go with this one.  The idea came (no not while I was cooking this time, LOL) while I was sorting through some paperwork I was going to shred.  In this pile of paper was a Christmas card we had received.  I knew instantly when I set the card next to the teapot where we were headed.

TeapotideaI bet you can see too.  We shall see, I have to draw out the design on the teapot and get painting.  I just hope I can pull it off.   Cyn


About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website designbycyn.com was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
