Twist on a Teapot…..


I couldn’t be more thrilled with the finished teapot!  There is always a sigh of relief when I pull pieces from the kiln.  So many things can go awry during the firing process.  Breakage and smeared designs are two of biggest culprits I deal with.  Fortunately, it happens rarely.  Usually ‘Murphy’s Law” visits me when I am on a deadline.  All I did was smile when I opened the kiln today!

I hope this whimsical teapot made you smile too!  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 was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
