Teapots – A Home for birds? An Excuse for a Party? Or the Watched Kettle which never boils.

There’s a whole lot of serious teapot here!   This teapot looks like it doubles up as a kettle as well.  It;s got a bit of a billie can feel to it: waltzing Matilda anyone?

Absolutely LOVE this Boston Tea Party pot!  (what a swell party that WAS….) It looks like it’s been cobbled together from found objects.  The nuts and bolts are such an original touch and perfectly in keeping with the design.

Which bird wouldn’t want to live in this sprouting flowering teapot?

  1. very much enjoyed the collection of teapots- the students at art city are producing wonderful hand built teapots of unusual animals and equally unusual shapes and some adults as well are making them here in Winnipeg, Manitoba

    • Thanks Nora, I ‘ve let the teapot category go a bit, but I shall be bringing it back soon. I’ll be looking for new teapots to put on here so I’ll take a look at Art City 🙂
