Gryphon Teapot by tser Gryphon Teapot by tser
Huge gryphon teapot. I actually sculpted this a couple years ago, and it's just been sitting around, as bisque, in my house since then. Finally glazed!

Yes, it is a functional teapot. It's huge though (and therefore quite heavy), so it's probably best as a sculptural piece unless you're throwing a large tea party. Of course, it'd also work for lemonade or whatever.

iiiiiitty bitty gryphon head...
MEGAHUGE GRYPHON BUTT

Slab built, cone 6 oxidation.

Just awesome! Looks like some kind of gothic gargoyle.

Very original design, nicely done. I especially like the spout and lid. The glazes came out beautifully, lots of variation in color.

Lovely!

My school art class is about to start glazing the vessels we made earlier in the year.

Glazing can be the hardest part of the process!

I rather like that. It's sort of...cute, in its own way. Abstractish.
I do like the tiny-wing lid you've got going on there.

All the other gryphons make fun of his huge booty. :( And he can't fly.

I know what he reminds me of!

Been sitting here trying to think of it...and I finally got it!

Yellow Submarine! (Beatles cartoon movie, for those who live in deeper caves than I.)
He's sort of like those weirdly-proportioned monsters. I love that movie.

Also...flying is overrated. I bet he can kick the hell outta any enemy that tries to take him down.
