Tim Burton’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ film is released March 5 this year and from this clip, it looks a lot of fun. I’m not keen on Alice’s off the shoulder dress though – is there any need really? The visual effects look very interesting though. I found the floating Cheshire cats floating head on the trailer quite frightening. But so it is in the book, as it fades away and only the grin is left.
Surprised to see Tweedle dum and Tweedle dee in the new film though as they are charaters from Alice though the Looking Glass. So it would seem that both books and characters have been lumped together. But, back to the teapots. It is easy to see why the teapot serves as a vehicle to Alice. The teapot is central to the tea-party where we get to meet some interesting characters – especially the Mad Hatter.
I love the wild Mad Hatter teapot by Paul Cardew. Cardew seems very fond of Alice – he’s done lots of teapots with using the Alice theme.
I’ve cheated really with this image. It’s actually a favor box and I think it’s lovely! Available HERE
This unusual teapot has ‘Drink Me’ on the side – obvious really! But I like the reference to the time on the lid and the hearts on the handle.
My latest poem is ‘Her Facebook has it ‘ here
Lots of Alice porcelain HERE
