A  quick post before I get ready for work. I used to collect teapots.  I have quite a few.  My favorite maker was Tony Woods, I loved his character teapots.  Not only is his characterisation pleasing, I like the glazes he uses.  I would have all his work if I could.

I came across this ceramicist the other day (TomHatton).  Some of these designs are wonderful and very whimsical!

This is an excellent site for novelty teapots.  Needless to say I never use my teapots to make tea……..   I use the old teabag in the cup I’m afraid.  Besides, some of the teapots are totally impractical anyway, and that’s the fun of them!

And a good Teapot blog… (where I got the ‘Stella’ pic from)
