4″ x 6″ x 10″ Drinking Outside the Box is an assemblage piece in my teapot series. It has been a little while since I’ve done any new teapot sculptures, mainly because I usually work around a special items that I’ll find, and I just hadn’t found any cool pots lately, until this one popped up.
The base is a wooden box from a set of children’s nesting boxes. I love the use of whimsical items and it’s a nice shape and solid form. It is wrapped in antique paper and topped with bits of tea papers.
The pouring tea is created from wire, ribbon, chain and beads, and includes a special charm.
