Meet Kettle!

I thought I’d kick off my journey by presenting a few pieces from my collection of teapots.  I hand-painted each piece myself during my employment at Colour Me Mine, a paint-your-own-ceramics studio.  I focused on teapots because I found the various available styles to be funky and whimsical.

I never thought I’d be showing them off to the world one day on an online journal!   They were packed away in boxes for a number of years and only re-surfaced after I bought my own place.   They now sit on a few shelves in my home acting as sculptures and adding splashes of colour to an otherwise neutral landscape.

You could use them, but they are just too darned beautiful for that!  Hope you like them!
