School Work 2: Gothic Teapot by Gwyneira School Work 2: Gothic Teapot by Gwyneira
AKA the Teapot from Hell.

I named it that because I spent my entire reading week carving all the details on this thing (and the 4 cups and tray that go with it, which I'm not as happy with as I am with the teapot). It turned out fairly well I guess, although I tend to see every flaw when I look at it... It's (rather obviously) inspired by gothic architecture. And it was a lot of work.

It was hand built from recycled clay and glazed with light sprays of 3 different glazes (matte green, matte tan and black). The inside is glazed black.

This is quite possibly the coolest teapot I have ever seen. Well done with it ^_^

OMFG! Gothic Teapot FTW! But seriously, while I do see some of the "flaws" what really stands out to me is how well you incorporated Gothic architectural aesthetic into a ceramic artwork. I've never seen anyone attempt to do that and here you did so successfully IMHO. My favorite detail that I think is the most creative thing you thought of is making the handle look like a flying buttress, which shows that you really do understand both ceramic and architectural art.

Wow! I thought that this was metal at first, your glazing is impresive. I really like this piece.

The detail on the teapot is very good, and the idea is really original. I like the glaze color choices too.

The glazes on that are very nice. Sort of like the patina on copper (which fits beautifully with the design)
