Humble Beginnings

Humble Beginnings

8″ x  14″  Humble Beginnings is an assemblage piece in my teapot series. This little camp coffeepot has seen some fires in its day. Now it is perched upon a silver candlestick, pouring sparkling brew into a delicate wedgewood teacup. The piece represents the fact that from humble beginnings brews enchanting things.

Moon Milk

Moon Milk

8″ round.    Moon Milk is an assemblage piece in my tea pot series, though technically the cow is a pitcher, not a tea pot. The cup is one I have had for years, found at a yard sale. It is an antique child’s cup, in the shape of the man in the moon. The cow pitcher is also an antique, in surprisingly similar coloring to the cup. They belonged together. To make it a fun piece I felt the cow needed to be jumping over the moon, and she pours “milk” along the way.

The “milk” is created from antique beads and sequins. The base of the piece is a silvertoned trivet. The sign to the left of the cow is created from an antique silver frame and white glass beads. The piece is made to hang.

A Spot in Stripes

A Spot in Stripes

8″ x 8″  A Spot in Stripes is an assemblage piece in my tea pot series. The base is a scrollwork metal wire box top found at the goodwill. The tiny tea cup is bold in stripes and creates a fun flare I couldn’t resist. The spot of “tea” created of sequins, wire and beads, pours from a blue antique tin tea pot.
