Tea Time in the Willows

I went for over a year without making any teapots, but I thought it would be a good addition to my portfolio to make some willow teapots and matching cups. I still plan on making a teapot with ginkgo leaves on it as well, but I am focusing on the willow work first.

I played around with stacking the tea cups for a few photos, and it makes a pretty fun image. I don’t know if I will use the stacked photo in my official portfolio, but it is worth keeping 🙂

Once I start making teapots, it feels hard to stop. I’ve made four willow teapots so far out of a compulsive obsession to get the perfect teapots for my portfolio. This time last year, I was selling quite a few teapots on Etsy. Who knows if it will happen again this year or not…

I do have a willow teapot listed on Etsy, just in case you are starting on holiday shopping:
